Coffee County Schools Awarded $500,000 Telemedicine Grant

The Coffee County Board of Education (BOE) met on Tuesday, February 5, for their work session and monthly meeting, and it was announced that the school system was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $500,000 for the purchase of telemedicine equipment.

During the regular meeting, Coffee Schools Nursing Supervisor Kathy Cole and Family Connections Director April Thomason announced that the Coffee County School System was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $500,000, which will be used to purchase telemedicine equipment.

Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance, and Cole stated, “By receiving this grant, we truly are on the cusp of something so very innovative.”

The school system will purchase telemedicine equipment for Eastside, Westside, Indian Creek, Coffee Middle School, the George Washington Carver Freshman Campus, and Coffee High and will likely purchase a portable unit to be used at Ambrose, West Green, Nicholls, and Broxton.

The equipment will allow students and school employees and staff to be seen by a certified medical physician without ever having to leave the classroom or school. By doing so, statistics have shown student and employee absences will reduce dramatically. Prescriptions can also be obtained during the consultation and depending on which pharmacy the patient uses, prescriptions will also be delivered to the schools.

There are over 240 doctors in the physicians’ network the school will utilize, all who take insurance, and 41 school systems in Georgia will be utilizing this technology by the end of the year, according to Cole.

Students must see our nurse, Ms. Wanda Fluellen on D-wing, to sign up.
