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.

Robot Helps in the Emergency Department
Children’s National introduced a robot to its Emergency Department (ED) for patients under evaluation for a COVID infection or being treated for other conditions.
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.
