Primary care telemedicine platform

Harborview Telemedicine Initiative

With the acceleration of pandemic COVID-19 in our area, King County Medical Society would like to inform its members of Harborview Medical Center's efforts in developing a new telemedicine platform.There is no doubt that physicians are being inundated with calls from patients with questions made difficult by rapidly changing official guidance.

This Harborview initiative would allow primary care pediatricians to asses the "worried well" from home. If you are interested in learning more about these efforts, or how to get involved, please contact Mary King, MD at or

PROVIDERS: Health Care Authority coverage for telehealth services

Telehealth/telemedicine services provide an important and rapidly evolving suite of access tools for providers and patients for medical, dental and behavioral health services. The Washington Department of Health (DOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are referencing the potential use of these tools as part of the state and national response required by the current coronavirus situation. HCA reimburses providers for telemedicine services as related to RCW 74.09.325.
