Program Overview

Boston Children’s Hospital offers virtual visits (also called telehealth or telemedicine visits) across hospital departments. This allows patients and their families to have a medical appointment with their clinical care team via video from the comfort of their own home or another convenient location. This saves the patient and family time and travel costs while providing the same quality care as an in-person visit. During the visit the clinician will review your child’s symptoms, answer questions and discuss next steps.

Virtual visits are offered by most Boston Children’s Hospital departments and clinics to patients where clinically appropriate.

Healthcare Context

Boston Children’s aims to treat every child, regardless of geographic location. The ability to interface with a clinician from the home, or other private locations, will further extend the reach of Boston Children’s and allow our clinicians to provide the same standard of care worldwide as they do in Boston, Massachusetts.
