MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics at CVS stores in Georgia and Massachusetts will now offer care for minor illnesses, minor injuries and skin conditions through video visits. This service connects customers to 24/7 care through their mobile device or computer. When requesting a video visit, customers will complete a health questionnaire and be matched to a board-certified health care provider licensed in their state. The provider will review the completed questionnaire together with the patient's medical history, assess the patient's condition, and determine the appropriate course of treatment following evidence-based clinical care guidelines. For patients who require a prescription as part of their treatment plan, the provider will submit the prescription to the patient's preferred pharmacy. If it is determined the patient should be seen in person for follow-up care or testing, the provider will recommend that the patient visit a health care provider in their community. The service is now available in a total of 46 states and Washington, DC.
