CHA TeleHealth

CHA Telehealth services let you connect with your CHA doctor or care team in a safe and secure way.

Telehealth includes video and phone visits and several new MyChart functions, like eCheck-in for your in-person visits.

If You Need a Visit

To schedule a visit, just call your CHA Care Center or specialty clinic. We will help decide if a phone, video or in-person visit is best for you.

After a telehealth visit, your care team may ask to see you in person, depending on your needs.

Video Visits Using MyChart

CHA has linked MyChart with Google Meet to make your video visits easy and secure.
