The Children's National Hospital Telehealth program enables our healthcare providers to help families, physicians and other healthcare partners receive care or guidance through video visits. Through these efforts, our world-class care is transcending geographic barriers through digital health. Children's National has received Telehealth Accreditation from URAC for its commitment to promoting quality virtual health services for patients and families.
If you are a parent and would like to schedule a telehealth appointment for your child, please call the Bear Line at 1-888-884-BEAR (2327) and then view our appointment instructions. If you are a referring provider or you're interested in a telehealth partnership, email us or complete this form.
Telehealth visits allow families to minimize time taken off of work and school, reduce travel time to appointments and get help managing medication – all while never leaving home.
Our services for partnering providers include live video visits, provider-to-provider phone consults, chart review, mobile services, second opinion and more.
President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden paid a recent visit to the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) at Children’s National Hospital, where leaders of our cardiology services toured them through the state-of-the-art telehealth command center embedded on the unit.
We work with government agencies, universities and health care providers around the world in partnerships that advance telehealth innovations, bringing the best care possible to patients in their own communities.
