New model of virtual care at patients' fingertips

The COVID-19 crisis has reoriented a lot of in-person patient visits to delivery by telehealth. Now UW Medicine is announcing a digital health partnernership with 98point6, a virtual care service provider. 

"It’s great to have 24/7, 365 availability for common things that happen" says Dr. John Scott, UW Medicine's medical director of Digital Health. "If you want to avoid the emergency department or urgent care, you have this very convenient option. And it also does allow us to do some triage of COVID-19-like symptoms."

Doctors on the app can help with issues that are less-severe, such as a rash, cough, or potential urinary tract infection. Patients can get the app and have their care coordinated with UW Medicine.
