Many Children’s Hospital Specialists offer follow up care through video visits, which saves our patients and families many miles of travel. The next time you see your provider, ask him or her if telehealth is right for you. Our current participating service lines are listed at the bottom of this page.

I have been scheduled for a video visit. What do I do now?

After being scheduled for a telehealth visit, you should receive an email or text message with a link to activate your account. By following that link, you will be prompted to download our mobile app, which will be used to facilitate the video visit.

If you did not receive an invite after 24 hours, please contact our office so that we can resend your acount link.

You can also download the Virtual Care app on your tablet or phone:

On your appointment date:

At the time of your appointment, you’ll be reminded to log into your account for your appointment. You can access the video through your computer using the link above or through our mobile app. We recommend using a reliable WIFI connection for these visits rather than a cellular network.

When using the app:

  1. Tap the app and log in to your account
  2. Under the patient’s name, tap the green bar that says “Visit starting soon…”
  3. Tap “Start Visit”
  4. Fill out the short intake form and enter the waiting room.
