BLOOMFIELD, Ind. (WTHI) – Area students have access to better health service through new technology.

Telehealth technology is connecting Bloomfield Elementary students with medical provides.

A camera allows doctors to see and hear students. These doctors can help school nurses diagnose and treat students.

The school corporation nurse says this concept ensures students get the care they need. “Parents are working and it’s hard to get them to the doctor. It’s hard for parents to take off work and this allows children to be seen at school,” said Renee McIntosh.

Telehealth services begin Monday at Bloomfield Elementary School.

These services are provided in conjunction with the Greene County Rural Health Network.
