Telemedicine has changed the way healthcare is delivered. It allows quick access no matter where you or a doctor are located. Medical providers are able to evaluate, diagnose and treat a person they are unable to see in person via online video call.
Rapides Regional Medical Center is at the forefront of telehealth. We provide various options for you to conveniently get the care you need. Whether you have a one-time health issue and don’t have the time to schedule an in-person appointment, or would like to consult with your regular physician, we have options to suit your needs.
Primary care physicians and medical specialists
Many of our doctors, specialty physicians and advanced medical providers now offer online medical appointments in addition to in-person visits. This service allows you to see YOUR doctor without having to leave your home. Simply call your doctor or use our physician finder and call to schedule an online appointment. Insurance is accepted.
Rapides Urgent Care
Rapides Urgent Care clinics now offer the option to see a medical provider via an online health visit for patients 12 and older. Virtual urgent care visits are only available for certain conditions and during normal clinic hours. Insurance is accepted.
24/7 Care Navigator and virtual visits
We realize medical issues rarely happen at convenient times. That is why we offer 24/7 virtual health visits. Just answer a few questions about your medical condition and our online Rapides Care Navigator will let you know if you can be treated via a virtual visit and connect you within minutes. If you are unable to be treated via an online medical provider, Rapides Care Navigator will recommend the best care setting for you.
Online triage is free of charge. Virtual visits are only $25 for a limited time.
