Ryan O’Connell, DNP, FNP, prepares for a virtual appointment with a patient.

OHSU Health Hillsboro Medical Center has added a new way you can receive care. Instead of physically going to one of our Immediate Care clinics in South Hillsboro or Forest Grove, you can now be seen virtually from the comfort of your own home.

You connect with a provider from your smartphone, tablet or computer using a secure video link. With virtual immediate care visits, our providers can diagnose many non-emergency conditions and call in prescriptions.

When is it appropriate for you to make a virtual appointment?

Here’s a list of the most common conditions:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Back pain (Adult)
  • Constipation
  • Cough: Anyone under the age of 70 with healthy immune systems and no history of lung problems
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Headache (Adult)
  • Insect bites
  • Minor cuts, scrapes and burns
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Pink eye
  • Poison oak/poison ivy
  • Runny nose
  • Sinus pain
  • Skin rashes
  • Sore throat
  • Strains and sprains
  • Urinary tract infection: Adults and women who are not pregnant

Appointments could be within moments or later that same day depending on availability.
