Virtual care uses technologies like telephone, video, email, and secure messaging to connect patients and families to healthcare providers when they cannot be in the same location.
For patients and families, a virtual visit can make it easier to meet with your care team, allowing you to connect with your healthcare provider from your home or one of our sites.
For providers, virtual care can help you connect more easily with patients and other care providers when you cannot be in the same location, and can complement in-person care.
