As the Collier County community begins to repair and restore from the effects of Hurricane Irma this week, Physicians Regional Healthcare System offers free telehealth visits on Virtual Health Connect to help area residents get non-emergency medical care. The free telehealth visits are available through 11:59 p.m. on Monday on any mobile device, computer or tablet.
Virtual Health Connect provides on demand, live access to physicians and nurse practitioners at any time, but may be particularly helpful as members of the community are coping with the impact of rain, winds and flooding. The clinicians can help counsel individuals and families in their time of need with this quick and convenient program.
Access to free virtual visits on Virtual Health Connect can be done through an internet connection on any mobile device, tablet or desktop by visiting http://VirtualHealthIrma.com. At the time of visit, patients can enter coupon code IRMA to have their visit free of charge. Officials remind that anyone experiencing life-threatening medical emergencies should still call 911.
Virtual Health Connect is intended for patients who have an urgent need to see a physician for minor health concerns like sinus problems, fever, ear infections, cold and flu symptoms, allergies, migraines, stomach pain, and much more. The doctor will evaluate and diagnose the patient, and if feasible and appropriate, send prescriptions to the pharmacy—just like an in-office doctor’s appointment.
