The meeting shared learnings from the Medical University of South Carolina, a National Center of Telehealth Excellence, whose telehealth program serves more than 80 schools throughout the state. MUSC has designed a comprehensive process to implement a school telehealth program. The use of telehealth has exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic and will likely continue.
