Virtual care bridges the gap
From experience to transportation to money, students lack resources. They may not know when to seek help, where to go, how to get there, or if they can afford the care they need. With thoughtful telehealth, campuses can bridge gaps that keep students from good healthcare decisions.
A campus-wide program offers students one point of contact — anytime, anywhere — to get quality care and immediate treatment. Whether they need a simple prescription or a visit to the campus clinic, students can be confident about taking steps to improved health.
Easy, immediate access encourages students to take timely action for any ailment. No waiting for an appointment, matching clinic hours, or figuring out transportation. They can get quality care between classes, in the middle of the night, no matter where they live and even if they are traveling.
Telehealth removes the mystery and fear of seeking healthcare. Campuses can offer an included telehealth benefit to every student. No-cost visits gives campus better control over the provider’s students use and protects students and parents from running up big bills at a costly urgent care or ERs.
