Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin announces virtual visits

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin announces an innovative online option for members seeking treatment for everyday illnesses.

Dr. Mark Huth serves as the Chief Medical Officer of GHC-SCW and says the clinic is available online 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

From the comfort of your own home, members can be diagnosed and treated for more than 40 common health concerns, like sinus infections, pink eye, rashes and much more.

GHC-SCW members can receive three free visits per year depending on their plan.

So how exactly does it work?

The Virtuwell system allows you the ability to triage your symptoms through a series of medical questions, similar to what you would be asked in the doctor's office. Based on your description of the symptoms, Virtuwell's Nurse Practitioners will verify your medical history and allergies, and then may provide you with a treatment plan via text and email when it's ready. The treatment plan will also provide you with remedies and tips to assist with having the symptoms come back.
