The MUSC School-based Telehealth Team recently published a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) showing a decrease in ED visits among students with asthma. The study looked the connection between a school-based telehealth program and all-cause emergency department visits made by Medicaid enrolled children. Researchers analyzed 2,443,405 child-months of Medicaid claims data, comprised by 23,198 children aged 3 to 17 years living in Williamsburg County.  “The data was categorized into pre- and post-intervention, with pre-intervention data spanning 2012 to 2014 and post-intervention data between 2015 and 2017. In addition to overall claims data, the research included a subsample of children with asthma, intended to capture associations between children with asthma and the same school-based telehealth program.“ Center for Connected Health PolicySee JAMA article and study.
