MyEClinic and MyChart Video Visits are both available to bring you the care you need.

Skagit Regional Health offers two options to help make receiving care more convenient. MyEClinic and MyChart Video Visits are both available to bring you the care you need, but there are differences. Try MyEClinic when getting to an Urgent Care isn’t convenient, and opt for a MyChart Video Visit for your scheduled appointment.

MyEClinic

MyEClinic is available to anyone in Washington without an appointment for a $40 flat rate. With MyEClinic, you have 24/7 access to our team of board-certified doctors and nurse practitioners for consultation, diagnosis and treatment through computer video chat or over the phone without an appointment. MyEClinic providers treat a variety of minor illnesses and common conditions, such as pink eye, rash, urinary tract infections, sinus symptoms and more and are able to prescribe medications when appropriate.

MyEClinic visits typically last about 20 minutes. We will provide a summary of your visit that is accessible via your online account. We can even help you find a new doctor for future healthcare needs. Any prescriptions deemed clinically appropriate will be called in to your local pharmacy.

*Our providers will always assess your condition individually and based on your unique circumstances, including the severity of the illness, may need to refer you for in-person care for proper diagnosis and treatment.

If you are seeking testing for COVID-19 you must do so in person. MyEClinic providers are not able to schedule testing.

MyChart Video Visits

MyChart Video Visits are available to existing Skagit Regional Health patients as a convenient option to replace their scheduled office visit. Many of our providers offer this opportunity, which allows you the ease to discuss healthcare topics, new symptoms or medical concerns without needing to travel or wait to be seen. You simply login when it’s your appointment time, complete preliminary screening with a medical assistant and then start your appointment with a provider.

MyChart Video Visits require an active MyChart patient portal account. These visits replace your regular office visit and appointments are required.

Types of MyChart Video Visits include:

  • Primary Care - discuss regular healthcare topics or ask about a new symptom or medical concern
  • Specialty Services - many specialty appointments can be done virtually, such as pre-op appointments and specialist maintenance visits
  • Chronic Disease Management - such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and ongoing medical concerns
  • Acute Concerns - such as bladder infections, upper respiratory infections and rashes

Schedule a MyChart Video Visit inside your MyChart patient portal, through your provider’s office directly or call us at 360-428-2500. Click here to learn more about MyChart Video Visits.
