A Revolutionary Way to Deliver Non-Emergent Care to your Students
MORE STUDENTS MEAN INCREASED DEMAND FOR STUDENT HEALTH SERVICES…
According to the US Department of Education, projected fall enrollment at degree-granting post-secondary institutions in the US was expected to reach 21.3 million students by 2018, an increase of over 38% when compared to enrollment in 2000. With more students, institution based student health clinics will also begin to feel the effects of increased patient encounters. This means longer wait times to be seen or get appointments, unhappy students and parents, and the need for more providers and/or more space to handle the increased demand.
For those schools who may not have the funding for an on-campus student health center, students are left to seek non-emergent or urgent care in costly ERs or urgent care clinics.
Welcome to the future of medicine for your students
The American Medical Association recently updated guidelines on its policy regarding telemedicine and suggested “telemedicine can strengthen the patient-physician relationship and improve access to receive care remotely, as medically appropriate, including treatment for chronic conditions, which are proven ways to improve health outcomes and reduce health care costs”.
By combining the recent advances in smartphone and computer technology with students who may need to see a provider for non-emergent conditions, Campus Rx was created as a means of bringing cutting edge technology to a steadily growing student population. It was developed to serve as a primary resource for those institutions that may not have a student health center, or as adjunct to those who do, by allowing your students access to board-certified providers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from almost anywhere in the United States.
We have negotiated competitive rates to provide this service at a fraction of the cost of traditional healthcare delivery systems. And now more than ever, telemedicine’s cost savings and various delivery options meet the healthcare needs of the tech-savvy student population using technology that they are very familiar with – their phones.
School administrators across the nation are finding value in telemedicine’s ability to manage routine illnesses (such as allergies, bronchitis, sore throats, sinusitis, respiratory or urinary tract infections), allowing staff to reserve face-to-face visits for more serious conditions. Healthcare delivery via telemedicine becomes a natural complement to existing health services by providing timely consultations that can be provided anywhere and is a more affordable and convenient means to address most non-emergent care needs without any compromise in the quality of care.
