Online Health Care Provider Visits 

Our telemedicine program helps current patients follow up with their Johns Hopkins health care provider using a smartphone, tablet or laptop with webcam. It’s an easy way to consult with your health care provider while reducing wait times and avoiding the hassle of getting to the doctor’s office.

“The use of telemedicine has facilitated psychiatric visits for patients who had previously gone months before they could coordinate a way to come to the clinic. The ability to see my patients more often is always a good thing.”

— Hal Kronsberg, M.D., participating psychiatrist

A Safe and Secure Platform

The telemedicine program at Johns Hopkins is wholly owned and operated by Johns Hopkins Medicine. Through the system, your health care provider has access to your secure electronic medical record.

Your information and safety are carefully protected when you use telehealth services, just as they would be during an in-person health care provider visit. Each transmission is secure and compliant with all traditional privacy regulations.

Participating Health Care Providers and Programs Highlights

The following health care providers and specialty areas are taking part in Johns Hopkins Medicine’s telehealth services.

  • As patients with ALS become progressively debilitated, their ability to travel becomes limited. This makes it difficult for patients to follow up with their specialist and access our ALS clinic.

    Real-time video visits may be an ideal alternative for critically ill patients with ALS, allowing them to remain at home while they receive care. Through this program, we’re also studying the feasibility of telemedicine care for established patients with ALS compared with standard in-person care.

    To make a telemedicine appointment, please call 410-614-9874 (for Maryland residents only).

  • Child and adolescent psychiatry Medicaid patients at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center who get therapist visits can use telemedicine for their follow-ups or get help with urgent matters from Hal Kronsberg, M.D.

  • Certified nursing assistants in the emergency departments at The Johns Hopkins Hospital are using telemedicine technologies to screen patients while communicating with a doctor in a remote location to reduce wait times and begin treating patients more quickly.

  • The Johns Hopkins Home Care Group is using telehealth technology to work with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians. Together, the two groups are improving care for homebound patients by advancing the ability to capture real-time vital signs and engage with patients through video.

    Contact the Johns Hopkins Home Care Group.

  • In treating stroke, timely administration of clot-dissolving drugs and other treatments is essential. Telestroke uses video consultation and examination of patients suspected of having stroke, backed by the expertise of Johns Hopkins stroke expert Victor Urrutia, M.D. 

    The Johns Hopkins Telestroke program and its life-saving capability is accessible to emergency rooms across the health system, at GBMC and, most recently, in Bermuda.

Community Programs

Community programs help practitioners care for groups of patients with the support of Johns Hopkins doctors. With telehealth, pharmacists, nurses and others providing care for specific populations can access a doctor’s expertise from wherever in-person patient care is taking place.

  • Patients who are Medicaid beneficiaries and who are enrolled in the Child Mobile Psychiatric Treatment Program at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center use telemedicine for their follow-ups and for on-demand crisis video consultations with Hal Kronsberg, M.D., and remote family members, coordinated by a mobile therapist.

  • The Fetal Echocardiogram Program helps expectant mothers whose sonograms indicate a possible cardiac problem. Specialists at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., connect with experts at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center to share information in real time to get insight and answers quickly and efficiently, and to easily conduct a video consultation for treatment planning with the expectant parent.

  • Students visiting their school nurse’s office in Howard County, Maryland, can be virtually assessed by doctors at Howard County General Hospital. The school nurse takes the student’s vitals, then connects with the doctor using one of several Bluetooth-based exam tools. Parents can participate in the appointments through a call and hear about their child’s diagnosis or prescription, or ask questions.

  • Patients with infectious diseases who are at skilled nursing facilities and are on complex antibiotic therapy (including IV antibiotics) can work with Johns Hopkins doctors to ensure the best results and manage side effects.

  • Patients who get medication from specialty pharmacies can review their care concerns through a digital consultation with a clinical care pharmacist at our Holabird Avenue, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center or Johns Hopkins Hospital Arcade outpatient pharmacy locations.

    Contact the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Pharmacy or the Outpatient Pharmacy at the Arcade.

  • The Johns Hopkins Viral Hepatitis Center, through the ACCESS Telehealth program in partnership with county health departments, provides high-quality integrated hepatitis C and substance use disorder care to patients in St. Mary’s, Washington and Wicomico counties in rural Maryland. Patients can get free hepatitis C screening tests at the health department and rapid linking to care. The program includes counseling, evaluation and treatment of hepatitis C through weekly telemedicine visits with a viral hepatitis specialist. Patients go to the Health Department and get an in-person physical exam with a nurse on the premises. The ACCESS program plans to expand into two new counties in 2023.
