24/7 Kid Doc Announces Telemedicine Installation in Georgia Schools

24/7 Kid Doc, Inc. — a healthcare company providing Telemedicine solutions to public schools at no cost — has just announced that it has established a second pilot program, this time with the Montgomery County School District in Georgia.

Training on the Company’s proprietary Connect-a-Doc Telemedicine system was completed May 30th by Dr. Noberto Benitez, the company’s Medical Director.

“75% of what I can do in an office visit, I can do with Telemedicine, hundreds if not thousands of miles away from the patient,” said Dr. Benitez.

The pilot program will begin in the Montgomery Elementary and Montgomery Middle schools with the start of the 2017-2018 school year August 2nd.

24/7 Kid Doc, Inc. also announced that the company’s first pilot program being conducted in North Carolina has progressed to the point where parents are now enrolling their kids for the 2017-2018 school year.

According to Tim Shannon, 24/7 Kid Doc, Inc. CEO, “We are excited to have partnered with innovative school districts in both NC and GA that acknowledge that the future of school healthcare is Telemedicine.  We continue to be very encouraged by the reception we are getting from other school superintendents throughout the South and look forward to announcing more school districts and pilot programs in the coming months.”
