Virtual Visits & Telemedicine
Connecting with a doctor at 2 a.m. on a Sunday. Scheduling a virtual visit at a time that works for you. Chatting with a doctor during your lunch break at work. All are possible with Inspira Health.
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.
Scheduling Virtual Visits with Inspira Medical Group Primary and Specialty Care
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 ‘Book Online’ 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.

Remote Patient Monitoring
At Inspira, our innovation in virtual and remote health care goes beyond virtual visits. We are proud to offer programs through Inspira Health+ for remote patient monitoring to prevent health crises and ensure long-term health, proper medication management and self-monitoring.
Remote patient monitoring involves using connected devices such as smart scales, pulse oximeters and blood pressure cuffs to capture data at a prescribed frequency.
The data can be self-monitored, monitored by a provider or monitored by an outside agency.
This service is only available if prescribed by your physician.
