INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WANE) — Indiana University Health wants to help Hoosiers get tested for coronavirus.
IU Health has launched a virtual clinic to offer individuals free virtual screenings for COVID-19 through their virtual care mobile app.
The virtual clinic is staffed 24/7 with physicians, advance practice providers and registered nurses. The company said the clinic will screen patients from home, potentially eliminating the need to visit doctor offices or the emergency room.

Based on the results of the screening, medical professionals will recommend and facilitate appropriate care or next steps, a release said.
Here is how you can access the virtual clinic:
- Download the free IU Health Virtual Visits app (Google Play or iTunes) or enroll on your computer
