What is telehealth?

Telehealth, also known as telemedicine, delivers the same care as an in-person visit to Children’s Hospital Colorado, but from the comfort and privacy of your own home. Our telehealth video visits are kind of like Facetime or Skype with your doctor, but with medical-grade tools that protect our patients’ privacy. We can also use telehealth tools to remotely monitor kids’ health, to connect kids in the hospital with their families and friends at home, to coordinate with primary care providers, and more.

We offer telehealth across all of our pediatric specialties, clinics and care settings, allowing families to get the care they need at the time and place they need it  no matter how far away.

Interested? Just ask your provider, scheduler or care team if telehealth could work for your next visit.
