Cloud-based technology helps to improve access to healthcare
for Coffee County students.
Azalea Health, a provider of cloud-based healthcare solutions and services, announces its participation in the Rural School-Based Telehealth Center Initiative by providing its Electronic Health Record (EHR) software, services, and training to rural, K-12, school clinics in Coffee County, Georgia. Azalea Health was invited to partner with Georgia Partnership of TeleHealth (GPT) in the grant program. Their EHR solution will provide these rural schools with a cloud-based technology that will enable the school clinics to better manage student health charts and records.
Students can be seen in the school clinic and, using the Azalea Health solution, patient encounters can be documented accurately and shared with specialty and permanent care providers. As a result, students are treated and diagnosed faster, and parents don’t have to take time off work or lose wages from driving their children to their family care provider.
“Often parents in rural areas do not have access to quality healthcare,” says Marty Nall, Software Support and Training Specialist at Azalea Health. “They are forced to take time off work and lose income because they have to travel so far to see a primary care doctor. By having EHR and charting available at the school clinic, students will not have to miss school or delay medical care.”
Azalea Health is implementing its software in 12 elementary, middle, and high schools in Coffee County. The schools required a web-based medical billing software that included the ability of charting with multiple providers and locations. Azalea Health’s fully-integrated cloud-based medical billing software met the schools’ requirements.
“We are very excited to partner with Azalea Health in this important healthcare program with Coffee County schools,” said Sherrie Williams from Georgia Partnership for Telehealth (GPT). “We are confident that Azalea’s EHR will greatly benefit K-12 rural schools in Coffee County, and the families and communities surrounding them. Once we test the program in the Coffee County schools, we plan to extend the program to other rural schools.”
