Shannon School Telemedicine Program
Quick & Convenient
Taking time off work when your child suddenly gets sick at school isn’t always easy. With the Shannon School Telemedicine Program, your child can get the care they need without making a trip to an urgent care clinic and having to sit in a waiting room.
Careful & Confidential
Shannon’s School Telemedicine Program lets your child see a doctor through computer and video technology in the school nurse’s office. Using specialized equipment, providers from the Shannon Pediatric Clinic can listen to your child’s heart, look into their ears and throat and assess any other symptoms. If necessary, the Shannon provider will call in a prescription to your chosen pharmacy. Parents are informed prior to each visit and are able to listen to their child’s appointment via phone. Your child’s visit information will also be available to view in Shannon MyChart. You can sign up for access at shannonmychart.com.
Conditions that can be treated:
Illnesses that you would normally visit an urgent care clinic for can be treated virtually through the telemedicine program. These include:
- Abrasions and scrapes
- Strep Throat
- Coughs and colds
- Head lice
- Rashes and minor skin infections
- Pink eye
Pre-registration & Cost of Service
Parents must complete registration paperwork to enroll their child into the program. Paperwork is available from the school nurse and should be returned to the school office. You can also find printable registration packets in English and Spanish on our website at shannonhealth.com/schoolhealth. There is no cost to enroll in this program. If your child has a visit, we will bill your insurance and any required co-pay amounts after the visit. Those without insurance will receive a self-pay discount and be billed after the visit.
