Our Outpatient Virtual Visit services connect rural hospitals and outpatient locations to our providers using live, two-way, secure audio/visual technology, allowing patients to receive the care they need closer to home. In many cases, patients can receive this virtual care in a non-clinical location, like their home or work.
Information for patients
Many of our providers are scheduling virtual visits as an alternative to in-person appointments. Learn more about scheduled virtual appointments in the patients and visitors section of our website.
