Every child is precious and unique. At Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, we utilize innovative measures to make medical care more accessible for all children in our community. We know that it can be difficult to transport loved ones to clinic appointments. To ease this burden, we introduced the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a mobile school-based health clinic that travels to five schools in Bradley County to provide care for these students. More recently, we also launched a school-based telemedicine program to address the healthcare needs of students in medically underserved counties.

Telemedicine is a HIPAA-compliant technology which allows Children’s Hospital practitioners to remotely diagnose and treat children at their school. Advanced technologies such as a Horus Scope and Littman TeleSteth allow our providers to examine patients using high-resolution video and real-time sound relay in a face-to-face computer format.

Bringing Specialized Care to You

Due to the success of this program, Children’s Hospital is now expanding telemedicine services to offer remote medical care by pediatric subspecialty providers. Children diagnosed with asthma can be seen by pulmonology specialists while at school to ensure better control of their symptoms and reduce the need for emergency room visits. Pediatricians requiring specialty consults can also remotely access providers at Children’s Hospital directly from their offices via telemedicine and remain an active participant in the specialty care of their patients. Sound intriguing? At Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, children are our top priority and we will continue to embrace novel approaches to medicine to ensure that quality health care is accessible to every child.
