Connecting with a doctor at 8 a.m. on a Sunday. Chatting with a doctor during your lunch break at work. With a virtual visit, you can schedule an appointment at a time and place that works for you.
Our Approach to Virtual Visits and Telemedicine
A virtual visit is a way for you to meet with a provider without coming into the office. Inspira offers telemedicine for both routine care and long-term health management. While telemedicine is not for critical care or crisis, regular use could help you avoid a critical situation.
Inspira strives to offer virtual visits whenever possible. Call 1-800-INSPIRA or contact your care provider for questions about switching from in-person to a virtual visit.
How Virtual Visits Work
Telemedicine can be conducted via telephone, smartphone, tablet, or computer. Most appointments are held via voice and video so your provider can conduct a visual assessment and speak with you on a person-to-person level.
Before your appointment is scheduled to begin, you will receive a link to check in and instructions. A simple click on the link starts the online session. In some scenarios, you may be required to download the Microsoft Teams app to facilitate your visit.

The process for making a virtual appointment with an Inspira Medical Group physician is similar to an in-person visit. Patients can book an appointment: online, through the MyInspira app, by calling 1-800-INSPIRA or by calling your provider’s office.
Using the website: Click ‘Find A Doctor’ and search for your preferred provider. Click ‘Request Appointment’ and select the option to schedule online. In just a few clicks, you’ll be fully scheduled for your visit.
