Baylor Scott and White introduced a new online tool that allows patients to connect with a physician to help treat acute ailments – such as cold and flu – instead of heading to the emergency room. Patients complete a 5 to 15 minute online interview and clinicians respond with a diagnosis within an hour. E-visits can help reduce the amount of costly and unnecessary trips to the ER.
