As Ochsner evolves – caring for more people in more places to improve the health of our region – we’re also providing more convenient and cost-effective ways to access care.
For patients with time constraints or transportation, mobility or access challenges, virtual visits are now the fastest way to get real-time care. One new access point is Ochsner Anywhere Care, offering virtual visits with urgent care and behavioral health providers. Using an app on their mobile device, patients can connect via secure, live video with board-certified physicians and advanced practice providers to address their health needs.
During the virtual visit, providers may diagnose, prescribe medications or suggest follow-up care. If appropriate, providers will refer patients back to their regular primary care team – or recommend a physician when a new relationship is needed.
The personal relationships that our care teams build with patients are one of our greatest strengths. Through Ochsner Anywhere Care, as with other technology-powered offerings, we aim to complement in-person appointments with real-time care that gives providers a fuller picture of patient health.
