Heart Center Care During COVID-19

The Corrigan Minehan Heart Center is open and providing general and surgical care for our patients. We have taken unprecedented steps to ensure you are safe.

Virtual Visits at Mass General

Virtual visits are a convenient way to have an appointment with your Heart Center provider from the comfort of your home or other private location, without the need to travel to our clinics for care.

Center for Telehealth

Our mission is to enable more personal, more affordable and more efficient ways of giving care by supporting the gathering of patients and providers at the times and places best suited to their needs.

About the Telehealth Program

The Corrigan Minehan Heart Center provides patients and consulting providers virtual options for access to the expertise of Mass General cardiovascular specialists.

In addition to taking unprecedented steps to ensure all office visits, procedures and surgeries are welcoming and safe to patients, we have expanded our virtual visit offerings during COVID-19.

Virtual visits are also called telehealth visits and are being used to promote physical distancing. All of our physicians and advanced practitioners now offer virtual visit clinic appointments. These appointments use either your smartphone or a personal computer so you may see and speak to your clinician. Telephone appointments can be arranged when a smartphone connection is not possible. 

Some benefits of virtual visits:

  • Avoid taking a day off from work or school 
  • Receive personalized and convenient care from the same Heart Center providers you would see in person
  • Complete your visit from the comfort of your home, work or other private location 

All visits are encrypted, video and chat cannot be recorded and personal health information is not saved by the video system. Virtual visits are designed to make seeing your provider easy, while keeping you and your health information safe and secure.

Our world-class cardiovascular specialists also provide virtual consultation that improves clinical outcomes and provides case support by partnering with health care providers in the community.
