What is Telemedicine? And how can it help your sick child? | Chicago North Shore Moms

Snow day! School is out and you are working from home. Your little one comes to you and says, “I don’t feel good”. Four words no parent wants to hear, especially when you know your pediatrician’s office does not have any available appointments or maybe your day is already packed with conferences calls every hour. If only you could video chat your provider and ask questions!


Your wish is now reality. Introducing pediatric telemedicine! This cutting-edge online service allows patients to visit with a provider through two-way video conferencing. Telemedicine breaks distance barriers and offers patients convenient healthcare no matter where they are located. Board-certified pediatricians and pediatric trained providers can now interact with you and your child in real-time to make real-time medical decisions. This simple feature enables patients to speak with a provider who can diagnose, treat, and send over your prescription to a pharmacy of choice with just a few clicks.


Healthcare centers are continuously searching for ways to offer convenient and quality care for their patients. Now, providers can simply meet with one sick child without the caregiver having to bring the whole family along for the ride. All you need is Internet connected to a phone, tablet or computer.
