Connecting Patients and Providers, Virtually Anywhere

Now you can see your provider without leaving your home using UMass Memorial Health Care’s telehealth services. We're growing our telehealth (virtual visit) capabilities every day to better serve our community and make seeing a UMass Memorial physician even easier.

Virtual visits can be done for most outpatient clinics and physician offices - check with your insurance company about coverage. Using a computer or mobile device, patients can connect with their provider via a secure platform and in the convenience of their own home.
