Telehealth

Given the resurgence of COVID-19 in the community, a telehealth appointment with their healthcare provider may be a safer option for many of our patients.

Existing appointments — Your physician may reach out to you to convert an in-person visit to a telehealth visit when clinically appropriate.

New appointments — Some physicians offer the ability to schedule telehealth visits on NorthShoreConnect. Look for the option to schedule a video or phone visit when scheduling your appointment or ask about a telehealth visit when calling for your appointment.


Enhanced Telehealth powered by TytoCare

TytoCare is a handheld exam kit used to enhance the NorthShore video visit experience. This portable medical exam kit allows you to capture physical exam data, like heart and lung sounds or ear and throat pictures, and share it, using your smart device, with the NorthShore Immediate Care team from the comfort and safety of your home. Using this information, and other details provided during the visit, the team can make a diagnosis and offer a treatment plan, including prescriptions - if needed.
