BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Clinica Sierra Vista has launched a new program allowing patients to virtually visit with health care providers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

CSV Telehealth is now available 7 days a week to all CSV patients regardless of ability to pay. Patients can use this service from home, work, or on the go by signing in to MyChart. Patients will access a secure, interactive video using their smartphone, tablet, or personal computer.

Medical providers can diagnose patients, prescribe medications, and suggest follow-up care when it is appropriate. If follow-up care or further testing is necessary, CSV Anywhere Care providers will refer patients back to their regular CSV care team, or can recommend a new CSV physician when a new relationship is needed.
