School Programs

School-based telemedicine programs are making a significant impact on keeping our children healthier and reducing the number of absences due to illness. Conx.Care Telemedicine helps manage chronic conditions for school-aged children such as asthma, diabetes and obesity and decreases the use of urgent and emergency care.

The school nurse is an isolated provider yet she has to respond to a variety of needs, telemedicine allows a school nurse to remotely access expert medical opinion for those students that need it. This means a student can be treated without having to miss school for a doctor appointment and it also saves the school from losing attendance-based state funding.
