Tennessee school to welcome telemedicine service in 2020
The more that students are in school, the more opportunities they have to learn. That is one reason Johnson City Schools has partnered with Ballad Health to bring its virtual health or telemedicine health service to all city schools. With the telemed service, a healthcare provider will have the ability to virtually examine a student by looking in their ears and the back of the throat. They also have the ability to use a stethoscope to hear the heart and lungs and they will have an examination camera that will get close-ups of moles and rashes.
