Virtual Health is an innovative way to connect with patients using technology and telecommunications systems. Virtual Health expands access to care and increases health equity. The United Health Services New York virtual healthcare system is committed to innovation and quality by continuing to be a leader in the field of Virtual Health.
School-Based Virtual Health
United Health Services has partnered with the Windsor Central School District, Whitney Point Central School District and Owego-Apalachin Central School District to provide virtual care within the school nurses’ office.
A student can be seen within the virtual walk-in for a minor illness or for a scheduled health appointment with his/her United Health Services primary care, specialty care, or therapy services provider without leaving school. Through the use of multi-party video technology, the student’s parent or guardian participates in the virtual visit in real-time from his/her location if equipped with a device (smartphone, tablet or computer) and Internet connection.
Students within these districts can digitally enroll within this program by creating an account at nyuhs.zipnosis.com. This program is made possible through grant funding provided by the Care Compass Network.
