Lee Health recently launched Lee TeleHealth e-Visits, an asynchronous messaging-based telemedicine service. We are very proud to offer this new easy-to-use, convenient and cost-effective option for care.

The e-Visit allows patients to answer questions about their symptoms in a 10-minute online interview from the privacy of their phone or computer. With e-Visits, patients don’t need an appointment—the online medical interview is available 24/7 and adapts as patients answer questions. If the answer to the questions points to a problem that cannot be treated via e-Visits, patients will not be charged and will receive guidance on where to seek the appropriate care within Lee Health.

If answer can be addressed via the e-Visit, once it is submitted, and within a timely manner, patients will receive their diagnosis and treatment plan from a trusted Lee Health provider during specific business hours. Lee TeleHealth e-Visits require a phone, computer or tablet that can connect to the internet and a MyChart account. Insurance, however, is not required as this is a self-pay-only option ($29 per visit).

Telehealth services are available for patients to establish a trusting relationship with a primary care provider.

Lee TeleHealth e-Visits are the fastest, most convenient option for care for common conditions like colds, UTIs, rashes, ear infections and other non-critical symptoms and illnesses.

To help our patients determine the best venue for care—whether in-person, virtual (e-Visits and scheduled or on-demand TeleHealth video visits), urgent or emergency care, Lee Health also introduced an online symptom checker. Patients can click on ‘Get Care’ on the homepage of LeeHealth.org and look through a list of common symptoms and conditions or they can use the symptom checker to review more than 130 symptoms to help guide them to the most appropriate venue for care.
