Kalispell Regional Healthcare Launches Virtual Clinic

By | June 14, 2017

The Flathead Beacon says that in an effort to expand its medical offerings, Kalispell Regional Healthcare open a new virtual clinic called KRH Care Anywhere. Now patients can meet with a medical provider with a smartphone, tablet or computer without having to leave home. “The twenty four-seven virtual clinic provides round-the-clock access to medical providers for low-acuity conditions,” said Kip Smith, executive director of telehealth services. “When we say low acuity we’re talking about things patients commonly come into our clinics for: coughs, colds, ear aches, sore throats, and things like rashes, pink eye, allergies — normal everyday things.” Read the full story here.

For more information and to give it a try, see their website. Wouldn’t it be great to get medical advice this way rather than driving all the way into town? And may insurance companies are now covering virtual care.
