The Use of Telehealth in School-Based Health Centers

Description
Describes the growth in number and location of the telehealth model of care in traditional school-based health centers (SBHCs), and highlights how telehealth complements the care given by onsite providers. Examines the characteristics of SBHCs' use of the telehealth model including SBHCs who exclusively use telehealth, and the characteristics of provider types, medical sponsorship, and schools and students with access to SBHCs. Discusses the implications of the exclusive use of telehealth services, and how traditional health services are expanding due to the use of telehealth.
