GREENSBORO — In its first year, the school-based telehealth clinic at Bessemer Elementary saw 300 patients; 240 of those were able to return to the classroom the same day. The clinic opened in April 2021, and now Guilford County Schools is now expanding the program to two additional Greensboro schools: Cone Elementary and Washington Montessori. The three clinics are operated through a partnership with Cone Health and receive grant support from the Duke Endowment. The district envisions adding clinics at all 51 of its Title I elementary schools in the next several years.
As school-based telehealth grows, so does the need for a healthcare workforce ready to provide these services. “As we look at the needs of the digital work force, understanding the telepresenter role really becomes important, including asking how we advance that role, how we create the necessary competencies for that role and assess those competencies, and how we partner with other agencies that will help us to train for these new roles,” says Dr. John Jenkins, Digital Health Education and Special Projects, Greensboro AHEC.
