Whether you’re due for a routine visit, need to speak with a specialist or an unexpected health care need arises, Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) has virtual care options for you and your family. The best part? You’ll always be seen by an LVHN provider who is able to view your medical records at the click of a button.
In most cases, the best first step for receiving care is a virtual visit through your MyLVHN app or on MyLVHN.org. Virtual options include LVHN ExpressCARE Video Visit, E-visits or our 24/7 nurse line at 888-402-LVHN (5846), option 4.
Get started with MyLVHN
First download the MyLVHN mobile app. MyLVHN is a secure patient portal, which means you'll not only be able to meet with a provider virtually, you'll have access your health information, billing and much more.

With three different virtual care options available, you can choose a visit style that works best for you or your child:
ExpressCARE Video Visits
Whether you're looking to schedule a video visit at a time convenient for you or you'd like to wait in a real-time virtual queue for the next available provider, you can schedule an appointment for your minor illness or injury right in the MyLVHN app.
- Log on to MyLVHN
- Click "Menu"
- Click "Schedule an appointment or video visit" to schedule an appointment at a time convenient to you,
OR click "On Demand ExpressCARE Video Visit" to be placed into a real-time virtual queue.
- Follow instructions on the screen based on the type of visit you selected and the symptoms you are experiencing.
Children’s ExpressCARE appointments are available for children of all ages. Just log into your child's MyLVHN profile and follow the steps above. You may need to request proxy access to your child’s MyLVHN account to schedule their appointment.
Consult with a provider through an interactive questionnaire.
If you are experiencing common urgent care symptoms, need screening for COVID-19 or if you are a current rehabilitation patient, you can fill out an interactive questionnaire. Your responses will be sent to an LVHN provider or specialist for review. You will receive a reply within one business day (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.). You’ll be able to ask questions and get next steps – all through the messaging function in MyLVHN.
E-Visits are available for children and adults. To begin your E-Visit:
- Log in to MyLVHN.org or your MyLVHN mobile app.
- From the main "Menu," select "E-Visits."
- On the next screen, select the type of E-Visit you want to have. Parents or guardians will need proxy access to their child's MyLVHN account.
Good to know: Messages sent via MyLVHN may result in an E-Visit
MyLVHN provides you with a secure way to send a message to your health care provider. Messages sent through MyLVHN are appropriate for non-urgent health-related concerns that you might have, such as if you have a question about a test result or if it is okay to increase physical activity.
When your health care provider reviews your message, she or he may see that you have many questions or concerns, or your question is of a more complex nature that requires additional information. In that case, your health care provider will likely suggest in a reply message that an E-Visit would be a more appropriate way to provide the right care for you.
Through an E-Visit, you will have an opportunity to get your questions answered, much like an office visit, and if follow-up care is needed, it will be recommended. You will receive a reply within one business day (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.). E-Visits are another way your LVPG and LVHN health care teams provide comprehensive health care to you.
