A collaborative partnership between Managed Health Services, Indiana Rural Health Association, Elwood Community School Corporation, Aspire Indiana and St. Vincent Mercy allowed Elwood school district to open a telehealth clinic in their school nurse's office.Using telemedicine technologies such as AGNES Interactive and connected medical devices, the school nurse can connect to a remote provider over video conferencing, and show them a close up of the physical ailment that is bothering the child. Remote providers are then able to make a diagnosis and write a prescription for the student without the child having to leave school for an appointment.
