MEDFORD, Ore. — Rogue Community Health announced that it has launched Virtual Visit, a telemedicine solution that allows patients to receive diagnosis and treatment for common medical conditions from a Rogue Community Health provider using a smart phone, tablet or computer via video connection.

“We have moved quickly to launch Virtual Visit to help our patients safeguard their health and minimize exposure to the Coronavirus as they are limiting their excursions under the Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy Policy,” said William North, CEO for Rogue Community Health. “Patients are able to see a health care provider from the comfort of their own home and maintain their health during these difficult times.”

Rogue’s Virtual Visit can treat for common, non-acute medical conditions.

Rogue’s Virtual Visits are available from 8am to 6pm, Monday through Friday and 8am to 4pm on Saturday. Anyone experiencing a medical emergency should seek appropriate emergency medical assistance by calling 911.

Patients can log into their MyChart account to schedule a Virtual Visit today. If you are new to Rogue Community Health, there are just a few steps required to begin receiving services. Please call 541-773-3863 to get started.

Virtual Visit uses Zoom, a web-based video conferencing service, to host MyChart virtual visits. Patient insurance will be billed for the visit or a sliding fee scale is available for those income qualified.
