These days it seems virtual care visits are taking center stage. CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group offers telehealth for all patients, including those needing after-hours care, using the Zoom videoconferencing tool. Like many of his colleagues, Kevin Moore, MD, family medicine physician at CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group – Primary Care, Bardstown, has been offering virtual care visits for nearly two years. He thinks it’s a value-added service that’s safe and convenient for patients and works well in a variety of situations.
“Virtual care visits are great for routine follow-up appointments, especially for conditions such as depression and anxiety that don’t always require examining a patient,” Dr. Moore said. “I find these visits beneficial for evaluating behavioral health conditions and performing chronic disease management and medication refills.”
