Today, many people are looking for more convenient access to the care they need. That’s why we’ve introduced a virtual care option for pregnant patients. You get the personalized care you need in a way that’s convenient and easily accessible.
If you choose the Virtual OB Visits option, your first prenatal visit will be in person with the MultiCare pregnancy care provider of your choice — such as an OB/GYN, certified nurse midwife or family medicine OB provider — and will include your provider taking your medical history and performing a physical exam. Prenatal visits after your first appointment will alternate between virtual visits with a MultiCare advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) via your computer and scheduled visits with your MultiCare provider at their office.
A virtual visit offers you great flexibility in terms of hours and location. Virtual visits are scheduled appointments at times that are most convenient for you, and they may include any of your family members. Through MyChart, you will be provided access to your personalized interactive MyPregnancy dashboard, web tools and other resources.
If you choose Virtual OB Visits, your provider team will step you through how things work, but here’s a quick overview:
