How do you get treatment for pink eye during a public health crisis? Or renew a prescription when you can’t see your provider in person? Scripps has the solution: virtual care. As many outpatient clinics closed following the arrival of COVID-19, Scripps rapidly expanded its telemedicine services. Primary and specialty care providers quickly shifted from in-person visits to leveraging technology to connect with patients in a new, innovative—and safe—way. Learn more about Scripps telemedicine services here.
Scripps also lets patients skip the waiting room via its new mobile check-in and curbside arrival services. Patients can use the MyScripps app to let providers know they’ve arrived for their appointment. Find out more about these services here.
