Title: School-based telemental health at the University of Texas Medical Branch: A compilation and design of a standard operating procedures manual
Author: John Joseph Venezia
Abstract: Our nation is undergoing reform to close the gap on health care disparities within its population . Tendering services to everyone regardless of ability to pay will , no doubt , increase the number of people served ; however , simply offering will not ensure total population compliance in seeking health care . Bringing health care to the people will help bridge the gap that remains . For fifty years clinics have been introduced to schools to bring health care to students who may not otherwise get health care . These school -based health clinics (SBHCs ) have evolved from offering primary care to comprehensive specialty care to include mental health services . Concurrently , health care has evolved technologically to include electronic health records and telemedicine . UTMB has a telepsych program that has been very successful and is on the cusp of an impressive expansion project that will double the number of current care sites . The program is in need of a standard operating procedures manual that can be utilized for training of impending new personnel and ensuring a consistent quality of care . The aim of this project is develop such a manual that will provide assistance and grow with the program .
