Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) has launched a new virtual urgent care service specifically for children and young adults up to 21 years old who need after-hours medical attention for non-emergency conditions, according to MobiHealth News. The platform connects patients with CHLA healthcare providers for presentations such as fever, respiratory infections, vomiting, minor eye issues, allergies, bruises, cuts and scrapes. The telehealth providers can offer discharge instructions, send prescriptions to pharmacies, and recommend a referral to additional care if necessary.

More providers in the market: The LA children’s hospital is the largest provider of hospital care for children in California. With the new virtual urgent care service, it will be competing in the market against TelMDFirst and MinuteClinic.
