Our urgent care telehealth team members are licensed to see patients in seven states, and we’re partnering with other health systems so that our specialists can work with community hospitals that may lack expertise. We’ve also created telemedicine guidelines to standardize our care as we hire new providers. It’s important to know when a video visit isn’t appropriate — for instance for an infant with an eye infection, which should be treated immediately. We’ve even created special telehealth curriculum for our pediatric residency program at Nemours Childrens Hospital, Florida in Orlando.
As other forms of digital health care come on the market, such as home tests for strep throat and portable monitors for diabetes care, we’re working to make sure we can integrate them seamlessly, providing maximum convenience and ease for our patients and their families. Telehealth is here to stay, and at Nemours, we’re still leading the way.
Download the Nemours app and schedule an urgent care telehealth visit to diagnose an eye, skin or breathing problem. You can also see a provider by video to follow up on a primary care or specialty care visit, have a well-child checkup, get behavioral health care and receive health education on topics such as nutrition, breastfeeding, or how to use an inhaler.
