How does Telehealth Express Care work?
Patients that consent to this unique visit are first seen by a nurse, examined by a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner, and then receive a real-time video visit with one of our board-certified Emergency Medicine physicians.
Discharge paperwork is printed directly in the room and prescriptions are ordered electronically. This service is offered to both adult and pediatric patients.
Why does Telehealth Express Care stand out?
● The Telehealth Express Care service at Weill Cornell Medicine is the first program of its kind — in the entire nation — based in an Emergency Department.
● The Emergency Department received the 2017 Emergency Care Innovation of the Year award for the Telehealth Express Care service.
