How do Video Visits On Demand work?
Video Visits On Demand are for immediate care only, not scheduled virtual visits with a primary care provider or specialist. Our providers are available only on a first-come, first-served basis. You must have an internet-connected device with a working webcam and microphone in order to use Video Visits On Demand. The service is optimized for use with smartphones and tablets (both Android and Apple devices).
We will automatically log your notes from your Video Visit On Demand in your MyChart account under the “Past Appointments” section. Your doctor can use this information to determine if you need additional care or treatment. The audio and video from the visit is not recorded.
Some exclusions apply:
- Video visits are not for medical emergencies. In case of an emergency, call 911.
- If you are driving during a video visit, your doctor will end the visit immediately for your safety.
- Video visits are available for patients located in the state of Michigan only at this time.
