How to Use Telehealth:
  • If You Need A Visit

    Please call your CHA Care Center or specialty clinic directly. We can help decide if a phone, video or in-person visit is best for you. 

    If you are a current Primary Care patient, you can also schedule a Televisit through MyCHArt. Just log in and click "Schedule an Appointment".

  • About Phone Visits

    If you are scheduled for a phone visit:

    • You will get a call from your provider or clinic at your appointment time.
    • To get the most from your phone visit, try to find a private room that is quiet.
  • About Video Visits
    Starting December 1, 2020, all CHA video visits are done using Google Meet.

    MyChart is no longer used.

    How video visits work:

    1) At your appointment time, look for an email from your clinic.
    2) Click the link to join the visit.


    Patient Tip Sheets for Video Visits:

  • Group Telehealth Visits

    About Group Telehealth Visits:

    CHA is doing group visits for patients using Google Meet. This will allow groups to continue to meet virtually using video.

    These visits will have a group leader on video, and ideally all group members will also appear on video. Patients can join these visits by video using a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a camera and microphone.

    Remember to get a referral from your primary care team before asking for a Tele-Derm consult.

  • Using eCheck-in Before Your Visit
