BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Adventist Health announced it has launched its on-demand virtual services, allowing doctors to meet with patients remotely.

These virtual visits will allow for health workers and their patients to keep that safe distance but still receive the care they need.

Providers will use the visits to screen for coronavirus cases, handle routine visits and the chronically ill, all while calming nerves of having to come into a clinic during the pandemic.

Adventist Health said this also saves on medical supplies, which are in high demand for dealing with the pandemic.

To participate in a virtual visit, a patient just needs a smartphone, tablet or computer with a working camera and microphone. The doctor will send an email with a link for the scheduled visit and patients will just view the link and log on.

Adventist Health said they are reaching out to patients to reschedule appointments as virtual visits, if possible.

If you have a scheduled in-person appointment and would like it to be virtual, you can make that change by calling your office.

These visits are covered by most insurance plans.
