PSJA Telemedicine Program
Thanks to a partnership with Urgent Care for Kids and Preventive Health Solutions, PSJA ISD’s Telemedicine Program allows students to be treated by a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant right in their school nurse’s office through a two-way video conference.
This service provides student-patients, through trained school nursing staff, the ability to connect via on-demand video chat with a Texas-based pediatrician in minutes.
By offering students medical services during school hours, the PSJA Telemedicine Program aims to save parents/caregivers time as student-patients can return to class once treated.
Among the medical services provided include: onsite rapid flu and strep testing, over the counter medications, pain relievers, treatments for allergic reactions, skin infections, cold treatment, nausea, and wound care.
Follow the steps below to register your kids for the PSJA Telemedicine Program.
