2022 Telehealth Program of Excellence: Prisma Health School-based Telehealth Program

The 2022 Telehealth Program of Excellence award was presented to two school-based programs during the 10th Annual Telehealth Summit of South Carolina held in November at the Charleston Gaillard Center: the Prisma Health School-based Telehealth Program and the CareSouth Carolina School-based Telehealth Program.  

The Prisma Health School-based Telehealth Program provides on demand health education to children as well as medical care at the school using telehealth to connect with physicians located off of the school campus. 

“If we are going to get ourselves in South Carolina out of our ranking of 49th in the nation for health outcomes, we’ve got to do it through making sure that education is provided for these children and their families about how to eat better and to live better but we also have to be sure that healthcare is provided to them more efficiently and effectively, said Traci Cooper, Director of Richland County School District One’s Office of Strategic Partnerships and Extended-Day Programs.
