School-Based Telehealth Services
When your child gets sick at school, it’s not always easy for you to leave work. So what can you do?
Introducing Wise eHealth, a telehealth service that connects your child at school to a doctor, physician assistant or nurse practitioner at Wise Health System using computer and video technology.
Telehealth allows a student to be evaluated through a telemedicine conference. With your permission, your child can now be treated for many common conditions at school. The best part is, your child never has to leave school.

How it Works
When your child doesn’t feel well, he or she goes to the school nurse. In many if these cases, the nurse can arrange to have your child receive telehealth services through Wise eHealth.
During a telehealth visit, the school nurse will act as a patient presenter while your child speaks with the Wise eHealth doctor or nurse practitioner through video. The child’s parent or guardian may participate by phone.
The school-based telemedicine visit from a Wise Health System provider includes a full exam, medications prescribed when needed (at a low cost to parents), and an after visit summary for both you and your child’s regular doctor.
Your child can receive telemedicine visits while at school for these symptoms, plus many more:
- Flu symptoms
- Itchy, watery eyes
- Nasal congestion
- Runny noses
- Skin rashes or sores
- Sore throats
- Strep throat symptom
Wise eHealth services currently are offered in six schools in two school districts, with plans to expand to more schools in the future. Current partner schools are:
- Bridgeport Elementary School
- Bridgeport Intermediate School
- Bridgeport Middle School
- Carson Elementary School
- Rann Elementary School
- Young Elementary School
