DENISON ISD HEALTH SERVICES
School-Based Telehealth Program
HOW MAY WE HELP YOU?
Denison ISD is proud to partner with Children’s HealthSM to provide convenient access to expert behavioral health care. Many students struggle with stress and emotional situations. If you’ve noticed your child or teenager being impacted, they may feel more comfortable talking to a therapist or counselor virtually. With your permission, your child can video chat with a licensed behavioral health provider – right from school, right from a tablet. You can join the session from work or home, too. It’s a convenient option for expert behavioral health care.
TeleBehavioral services at Denison ISD will be covered in full for the first 4 sessions. Additional sessions will be billed to your insurance. Services that cost money will only be provided with your written consent. Visit childrens.com/telebehavioral for more information or call 844-856-6926.
The Children’s Health School-Based Telehealth Program provides in-school virtual consultations with physicians through the use of mobile telehealth carts. The carts connect a Children’s Health Pediatric Group physician, or Pediatric Nurse Practitioner to a child that may visit the school nurse’s office with a complaint that is outside the scope of school nursing practice. Through advanced, encrypted telemedicine technology, children at participating campuses from elementary to high school can receive HIPAA-compliant health care services. Pre-registration by the parent is required for the program.
If needed, electronic prescriptions can also be sent to the family’s preferred pharmacy. This initiative will eventually be expanded to help children with disease management by providing education, monitoring and follow-up for chronic conditions such as asthma, allergies and weight management.
Children’s Health has expanded its School-Based Telehealth Program to over 90 schools in the Dallas, Grayson, Collin and Tarrant counties. This expansion brought the fastest-growing school-based telemedicine program in the nation. Children’s Health is the only health system in North Texas currently providing school-based telemedicine.
