March 09, 2020

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana University Health has launched a virtual clinic to offer individuals in Indiana free virtual screenings for COVID-19 on the IU Health virtual care mobile app.

Staffed 24/7 with IU Health physicians, advance practice providers and registered nurses, the virtual clinic will screen patients from home, potentially eliminating the need to visit physician offices, urgent cares or emergency departments.

“Our first priority is the health and safety of our communities,” said Michele Saysana, MD, vice president of quality and safety, IU Health. “If you are experiencing symptoms or concerned you may have the virus, we recommend using this virtual clinic or calling your doctor before heading to a emergency department.”

Based on the results of the screening, medical professionals will recommend and facilitate appropriate care or next steps.
