Tips & Tools has developed a Best Practice Guide for School-Based Telehealth.  Here you will find information about getting started, developing a school-based telehealth strategy, guidance on preparing students, parents and guardians for school-based telehealth, information about billing and information about primary care, behavioral health and diabetes care in the school setting.

As part of the School Health Services National Quality Initiative, the School-Based Health Alliance (SBHA) and the National Center for School Mental Health (NCSMH) put together Telehealth and Telemental Health: Innovations from School Health Services National Quality Initiative

If you are an FQHC that is exploring school telehealth, the School-Based Health Alliance has created:

  • The School-Based Telehealth Playbook.  The playbook includes essential components for school-based telehealth start-up, key considerations from health centers across the country, and amendable resources for every planning stage. While this playbook speaks to FQHCs, the resources, guides, and tips are useful for most health systems.
  • Emergency Preparedness in School-Based Telehealth Webinar.  This webinar was designed for health center and health center look-alike staff. The webinar aims to increase the audience’s knowledge of and capacity to define how health centers can partner effectively with schools to implement telehealth care, identify how to provide students with care through telehealth, and reduce barriers to telehealth services.
