FTVV helps decrease potential risk of exposure and will provide a convenient alternative for families traveling long distances to visit their doctor. Patients and their parents can connect with their doctors via video software to conduct follow-up visits and discuss treatment plans.

This will not replace all in-person visits, as there will continue to be circumstances that require a physical in-person visit. Our Patient Access Personnel will evaluate if a FTVV is appropriate for each child based on medical criteria.

What does the process for a FTVV look like?

  • Patient eligibility for FTVV is determined by Patient Access Personnel
  • Provider availability is determined and appointment is scheduled
  • Patient Access Personnel contacts family
  • Patient Access Personnel will email the family a Skype link to use for the appointment
  • Consent will be provided in order for us to use this technology. A DocuSign document will be sent to your email

What are the technical requirements for a virtual visit?

  • Internet access
  • A computer or mobile device with email, camera and microphone
  • Completed consent forms (sent via email through DocuSign)

Please call our referrals office at 916-453-2191 for more information.
