Virtual care visits have skyrocketed and it’s not hard to see why. Not only do they help to control the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases but seeing your doctor from the comfort of your own home is convenient and saves precious time. Scripps has seen a boom in virtual visits for both primary care and specialty care, and for Scripps HealthExpress services. Throughout the Scripps system, 16 to 18 percent of all visits are now conducted virtually, and in some specialties, such as endocrinology, where patients require frequent check-ins, that number can jump to as high as 75 percent. Click here to learn more about the virtual care options available at Scripps.

Patients who choose to see their doctors in person may be among the first to see an intelligent recording device that some Scripps providers use to improve the patient experience. It allows caregivers to seamlessly record and document a patient visit while focusing on the patient. Learn more about the innovative technology here.
