Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth, Inc. and Georgia's Lt. Governor Casey Cagle's Office Hosted the 2nd Annual School Based Health Center Summit on November 9, 2012
Date:12/6/2012

iiz, that is proving to be a successful tool in SBHCs. They discussed how a SBHC in Berrien County, Georgia used the software with a small group of students and saw a tremendous decrease in the rate that group of students were presenting to the ER. Prior to beginning the program, the local hospital reported 24 asthma related visits in the ER. Nearly one year after beginning Abriiz, that number of ER visits dropped to one.

A panel of school nurses fielded questions regarding their role in SBHCS. The participating nurses were: Lynn River and Jana Walker, Ware County; Kellie Jones and Mona Morris, Turner County; Angie Barber, Pheobe Putney. School nurses are vital to the implementation and success of SBHCs. The nurses explained that they are learning to redefine their roles in the school clinic. Where once they were used to repair broken flip-flops and change dirty clothes, they are now shifting to a more medically focused position. Their role as a medical professional in the SBHC has re-validated them. Tasks not belonging to a medical professional are being shifted to other staff members in the school and nurses are once again focusing on the health and wellbeing of their students.

Shea Ross, Constituent Services Coordinator/Healthcare Policy Analyst, from the office of Lt. Governor Casey Cagle discussed various health related policies that could begin effecting Georgia’s medical community, as well as, SBHCs. Lt. Governor Cagle attended the Summit via pre-recorded video. In his statement he expressed his support of the work being done by SBHCs.
