Christus Health launches virtual visits
Christus Health has launched Christus On Demand Care, offering virtual visits for patients to meet with a caregiver through live video from their smartphone, tablet or computer for their urgent care needs from 7 a.m. to 7 p. m. every day of the week, and holidays. This new service compliments scheduled virtual visits that are already in high demand and available to new and existing patients.
“Christus On Demand Care means no commute and no busy waiting room. People will always have an option to see their doctor in person. Still, we want them to have another level of convenience, comfort and safety should they need that,” said Paul Generale, executive vice president and chief strategy officer with Christus Health.
Christus On Demand Care providers can treat anything from allergies or rashes to flu. The virtual visit allows someone to be placed in a queue and to be seen quickly by the first available Christus board-certified provider. Expected wait times are no longer than 30 minutes and are currently averaging a wait of just a few minutes.
First offered to Christus associates, the care is open to communities throughout Texas and Louisiana. Anyone who might need a virtual visit needs a smartphone (iPhone or Android) device, iPad, tablet, laptop, or a computer with a working camera and microphone.
Access the on-demand care at christushealth.org/virtual-medicine .
