What Is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is a new technology that allows you to see your provider via video on your phone, tablet or computer, without having to travel to the doctor’s office.

Benefits of telemedicine:

  • For minor problems or routine checkups, patients and families will not have to travel long distances to meet with their provider.
  • Our Virtual After Hours Clinic allows parents to connect with a provider instantly rather than traveling to an urgent care in the evening or late at night.
  • Refill prescriptions quickly.
  • Limit time away from school by utilizing school-based virtual clinics.
  • Streamlined consultation services allow primary care physicians to get advice from specialists directly or by allowing the patient to connect with the specialist remotely.

Note: Children’s Hospital offers telemedicine services as a convenience to our patients and families. However, this service may not be appropriate for all conditions or illnesses. Please consult our list of common complaints before requesting a telemedicine appointment. For example, these services are not appropriate for emergency situations.
