Fast Track Video Visits

At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Portland, we want to ensure that our specialized care is as accessible as possible. Fast Track Video Visits (FTVV) is a telehealth program developed as a convenient option for patients and families to help eliminate barriers to care. Through the use of Fast Track Video Visits, providers at the Portland Shriners Hospital can continue to provide specialized orthopaedic care to new and established patients from the comfort of the patient’s home via video software.

Visits are personalized to each patient and conducted through Skype with a Portland Shriners Hospital provider licensed in the state in which the patient lives. The FTVV program is an extension of the care currently provided at the Portland Shriners Hospital, and our pediatric orthopaedic specialists can conduct a number of patient visits using these video visits.

Appointment types appropriate for FTVV:

  • New patient consultations
  • Annual check-ups
  • Follow-up visits
  • Rehabilitation appointments

Fast Track Video Visits does not completely replace the need for in-person visits. Circumstances that will continue to require an in-person visit include new injuries, the need for X-rays, patients that need adjustments to their orthotic or prosthetic devices, and patients that need casts removed. However, by utilizing telehealth, our providers are able to reduce the number of patients who need to come to the hospital while also providing the same level of specialized care that our patients and families have come to expect.
