The education-health model has the potential to revolutionize primary healthcare for school-aged children, positioning schools as the first step in a school-aged child’s health journey, while keeping them healthy and in school. THINKMD’s clinical intelligence and data analytics tool is used by school personnel, such as school teachers, to offer triage, treatment recommendations, care plans and referrals to students, meeting them where they are – at school.
Research shows that children who have access to school-based health centers are:
- 40% less likely to be hospitalized than children who do not have access to school-based health centers
- 25% less likely to miss school due to illness
- More likely to receive preventative care (vaccinations, screenings)
- More likely to score higher on standardized tests
