CareNow has launched Virtual Care, a telehealth urgent care service. Virtual urgent care visits allow patients to see and talk to a provider from a mobile device or computer. Patients can visit a trusted healthcare professional from the comfort of home or the office.
Patients start the process with a virtual web check-in® during urgent care clinic hours. The clinic staff then sends a link via text message or email that the patient uses to access the fully interactive virtual visit with a CareNow provider.
CareNow’s telehealth service offers patients access to one-on-one care from one of our exceptional physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants through a secure and HIPAA-compliant internet video connection. Through a virtual visit, providers can evaluate many minor conditions and even prescribe non-narcotic medications when indicated.
While many minor conditions can be treated with CareNow’s virtual care services, there may be times when a more thorough examination is required or tests need to be performed which is available at all 18 Las Vegas locations. When this is needed, we simply convert your visit to an in-clinic visit and we will be waiting for you when you arrive. More information regarding all CareNow services and locations can be found at CareNow/LasVegas.com.
“Virtual Care is an extension of our clinical urgent care services and fully supports our purpose to help people return to what they value in their lives, in an even more convenient way. We are proud to provide an easy solution for our patients’ healthcare needs at their fingertips,” says Lamont Tyler, DO Assistant Chief Medical Officer for CareNow, Western Region.
Patients experiencing a medical emergency should always call 911.
