Virtual Care

Virtual care from the comfort of your home

Virtual care, also known as telehealth, gives you access to high-quality, convenient care from Baylor Scott & White providers you trust, 24 hours a day. From your smartphone, tablet or computer, MyBSWHealth allows you to schedule online doctor appointments, get virtual care via video or eVisit, send private messages to your providers and get quick answers to pressing health questions—all on your schedule.

Benefits of telehealth

Virtual care, also called telehealth or telemedicine, gives you access to a healthcare provider without having to travel to their office. You can do virtual visits at home, work, a loved one’s house or any other stationary location with Wi-Fi or a cell signal.

Virtual care is not only convenient, but it also:

  • Allows you to see a provider without having to take time off work
  • Helps you avoid childcare and elder care issues
  • May cost less than an office visit, depending on the type of virtual care you use
  • Prevents the spread of illness while sitting in a waiting room
  • Saves you travel time and expense

Virtual doctor visit

Virtual doctor visits function just like in-person office visits, except they happen via video using a camera on your smartphone, tablet or computer. A virtual doctor visit is a great option when you want a face-to-face conversation with your regular provider, a new provider or the Baylor Scott & White provider on call.

Please note that you will be asked to sign into your MyBSWHealth account or register for a new account to start your video visit.
