How Does Telehealth Work?

Your virtual care appointment will feel much like a regular medical appointment. You'll arrive at the telehealth clinic and check in.

Your nurse will:

  • Take you to the exam room.
  • Check your blood pressure and weight.
  • Ask about your concerns and current medications you're taking to help prep the doctor for your visit.
  • Connect you to the specialist you need through a high-speed and secure video call. You'll be able to see and talk to your doctor just as you would if they were sitting across from you.

Based on the reason for your visit, your on-site nurse may use medical equipment that securely sends your specialist real-time data.

For instance, the nurse may use a Bluetooth stethoscope. Or they might use a special video camera that gives the doctor a clear, close-up look at a skin problem.

When the visit is over, you'll receive a printout of your after-visit summary.

This will include vital information such as how to take a new prescription or where to go for any tests you need.
