RCPS is partnering with the nonprofit Kids'-Doc-On-Wheels (KDOW) to provide school-based telehealth and mobile medical services for RCPS students. These comprehensive pediatric services, which are available to all RCPS families on a voluntary basis, supplement existing school-based clinic services and can help reduce missed instructional time for students and missed work time for parents.

Enrollment in telehealth is voluntary and existing school clinic services will still be available to all students. However, voluntary enrollment will be required if families wish to access the telehealth services. If you would like to enroll, click the link above (you will need to create a Parent Portal account if you haven't done so already). If you need help or cannot enroll via the parent portal, please contact your school's clinic personnel.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is school-based telehealth?
School-based telehealth services are essentially remote medical services conveniently provided to students utilizing remote technologies and do not require students to visit traditional brick-and-mortar medical facilities. Such services provided in school settings could minimize missed instructional time for students and work time for parents. Additionally, comprehensive telehealth services support the existing school-based clinic services by providing a wider range of health services, both remotely and via a designated mobile medical unit. Existing school clinic services will still be available for all students.

What happens when a parent enrolls?

KDOW Community Outreach Team members will call the family to assess needs, including insurance.

If a parent enrolls, does that mean he/she loses their primary care physician (PCP)?  
NO. However, KDOW can become the primary care physician if the student does not have one.

What are the services provided?
Services provided can include Telehealth, online assessments, referrals, wellness and sick visits, sports physicals, coordination with the existing pediatrician, prescriptions. School clinic personnel or KDOW members will facilitate outreach and provide more information on the full range of services available.

How do I enroll/sign up?
A link to the enrollment form will be available in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. School clinic personnel and KDOW will also reach out to families to help facilitate voluntary enrollment in the telehealth services. Voluntary enrollment in the telehealth services will be required if families wish to access the telehealth services.

What if I do not want to participate?
Enrollment is voluntary. Existing school clinic services will still be available for all students.
