Centra Launches Virtual Visits

Medical care is now at a patients’ fingertips. Centra now offers virtual visits through its new service “Centra 24/7.”

Centra 24/7 provides immediate access to a board-certified physician through a live video chat. Patients can connect using a free app from their phone, tablet, or computer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

The doctors available on Centra 24/7 can diagnose and treat a wide range of non-emergency medical conditions and even send a prescription to a patient’s local pharmacy. Virtual visits aren’t meant to replace every trip to the doctor’s office, but may be a good option for some issues. Centra 24/7 can be used for symptoms and conditions such as: cold, cough, flu, sinus infections, sore throat, rash, pink eye, allergies, vomiting, diarrhea, fevers and headaches.

Centra 24/7 answers the communities’ call to access healthcare while matching convenience. This service will have an immediate effect by allowing our geographically distant patients to access care when they can’t make it to a practice location; giving them the ability to see a doctor from the comfort of their home, office, or wherever they may be. In the future, this service will also provide the opportunity for additional specialties to provide routine and follow-up care.

The cost of a visit is $49. Payment is made via credit card and insurance is not billed.
