What is VirtualCare? 

VirtualCare refers to the “virtual visits” that take place between patients and clinicians through communications technology. This digital connectivity allows “virtual” meetings to occur in real-time, from separate locations, and only requires an internet connection.

 

Who can use VirtualCare?

TeamHealth VirtualCare is available for patients of all ages. However, some specialized conditions are more safely treated by video, phone, or in-person.

We recommend access to high-speed internet and use a device with video and audio functionality (such as a mobile phone, tablet, laptop) for a successful visit.

Do you have any tips for a successful visit?

  • Join us in a private, quiet, and well-lit room.
  • If possible, position the light source in front of you
  • If you are getting treatment for a child or dependent, please have them nearby.

Can I obtain narcotics from a VirtualCare visit? 

No, clinicians will not prescribe narcotics via VirtualCare.

 

How long will my VirtualCare appointment take?

After your initial intake questions are completed and submitted, additional time commitments vary based on the type of VirtualCare you choose to receive.
