Equipment & Technology

COVID-19 has and will continue to shape our daily lives. Including, how health care is delivered now and in the foreseeable future.

To ensure timely access to care without exposing patients or staff to unnecessary risk, we are expanding our offering of virtual health care services. The decision on which type of virtual visit you have is based on your care needs and access to technology.

Telephone

A telephone virtual visit will require a regular telephone or a cell phone and a space with privacy where you can have the virtual visit.

Video

A video virtual visit will require additional equipment. You will need access to:

  • a personal device (computer, tablet, cellphone) with a web camera and microphone
  • high speed internet (for security purposes preferably on a private network and not on public Wi-Fi)
  • an email address (for video-conferencing)
  • a space with privacy in which to conduct the video visit
  • pen and paper to write down any questions or instructions from your health care team

If you don’t have access to these things, your health care team will make other arrangements for you to access care appropriate to your needs.
