Telemedicine at School-Based Health Centers

School-Based Health Centers now offer Telemedicine!

Telemedicine will increase easy access to care in each of our School-Based Health Centers in the absence of an onsite provider. Student patients will be able to visit their SBHC and visit with a provider from any other location via a video call. An onsite nurse will assist with the call by using instruments, such as a thermometer or stethoscope, that are connected to the telemedicine call so that the provider can read them remotely. 

School-Based Telemedicine Services include:

  • Tele-psychiatry—visits with a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at Bassett
  • Medication follow-ups – such as ADHD or depression medications
  • Concussion clearance by a pediatrician
  • Dietary Counseling by a Registered Dietician
  • Treatment of uncomplicated acute illnesses such as cough, sore throats, ear pain, rashes…..
  • Ongoing management of chronic illnesses such as asthma
  • Sub-specialty care-coming soon

Bassett Healthcare School-Based Health Program

  • There are now 20 Bassett Healthcare School-Based Centers (SBHC) located in 15 schools providing high-quality comprehensive and preventative medical, mental health and dental care.
  • SBHCs are open 7:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. when school is in session. We have extended hours from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., once a month, at each of our sites.
  • When school is not open, there is at least one site open to see patients every day (except for six major holidays).
  • Our toll free number during normal business when school is closed is 1-844-255-7242. A nurse practitioner or physician assistant and a mental health therapist are available to speak with you. 
  • Bassett School-Based Health is now accredited as a Level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). A medical home embraces the care partnership between families and their health providers to ensure that patients receive the most comprehensive care possible.
