Learning Series 1: A School Based Telehealth Example from The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) - May 19
Recorded On: 05/19/2023
This is part of the Advancing Health Equity Through Telehealth: AAMC Learning Series.
The introduction of more virtual learning opportunities for students has created a need for school-based telehealth programming. Many health systems are working to deploy school-based telehealth services to provide care to pediatric patients in under resourced communities. This rapid shift to virtual learning has left little time to design and tailor solutions to meet the needs of pediatric populations, in some cases exacerbating access disparities that existed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and creating lapses in health care services.
Dynamically understanding and addressing school-based telehealth services can support health system efforts to ensure equitable access to care for pediatric patients. This workshop will highlight work at The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and their school-based telehealth program, providing a thorough understanding of the approach, funding, modeling and the future for MUSC.
