Video Appointments Help Providers and Patients Connect
About Video Appointments
In support of a patient's ongoing healthcare needs, video appointments allow individuals to “meet” with their specific healthcare providers from the comfort of their own homes. These appointments are scheduled by the provider and can be used in place of an in-person appointment when appropriate. These video appointments also permit multiple people to join the visits, whether they be a loved one that lives far away or other providers and specialists involved in a patient's care. Video appointments also save patients the cost and stress of travelling to and from hospitals and clinics. They are used by providers across the spectrum of care, from pediatrics to geriatrics, for simple routine visits to complex patient care.
Video Visits Through UW Health Care Anywhere
Video visits using the UW Health Care Anywhere app allow individuals to see a medical provider 24-hours a day for urgent, non-emergency care using their smart phone, tablet or computer. No appointments are needed. Just like a visit to Urgent Care, these visits let individuals see a provider for a consultation and diagnosis when appropriate.
