What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine provides patients with convenient, safe, and timely access to care by bringing healthcare closer to home. Patients can meet virtually with physicians, surgeons and specialists from across Rochester Regional Health using telemedicine technology that's simple and easily accessible.

Reduced Risk of COVID-19 Telemedicine is relied upon now more than ever to reduce the number of people at our locations and prevent the spread of COVID-19 while still offering the same high-quality level of care from home. However, if you are experiencing an emergency, it is still recommended that you call 911, as the emergency department is the safest place for emergency treatment.

Timely Access In healthcare, timing can be critical. Telemedicine provides fast access to expert care in real-time and eliminates the need for travel.

Types of Visits

You can access your Rochester Regional Health provider through telemedicine for many types of appointments. Our providers evaluate patients for the following:

  • various non-urgent symptoms
  • follow-up visits (including post-surgical follow-up)
  • mental health services
  • pain management
  • medication monitoring
  • pediatric visits
  • evaluate symptoms of COVID-19

Call your doctor's office to get help determining whether telemedicine is right for your current needs, or if you need to be seen in-person.

How to Connect to Telemedicine

All patients can easily connect to their physician from their home or other remote location by using the MyCare patient portal on their smartphone - or by using Skype, Apple Facetime, Doximity or Doxy.me on their laptop, desktop computer, tablet, or any device with a built-in camera.

  • get your symptoms evaluated by a physician

Secure and Private Connection

Just like an in-person visit, your virtual visit is secure, private, and entirely confidential. To maintain privacy on your end, it is important that you contact your provider from a private and secure location, like your home. Your home is likely to be the safest place for a telemedicine visit.

Insurance and Costs

Our top priority is to ensure that you and your family receive the best possible care and are well informed about all aspects of your treatment, including your insurance coverage.

Prior to your telemedicine appointment, you should review your insurance plan to make sure your plan includes coverage for telemedicine appointments. Most insurance plans provide some level of coverage. However, you may need to pay some of the expenses, like a co-payment, at the time of your visit.

If you have questions about your insurance coverage, please contact us prior to your appointment to discuss the details of your plan.
