About Your Televisit

A televisit is when your healthcare provider uses technology to care for you without you having to travel to their office. During your televisit, you and your healthcare provider will see, hear, and talk with each other through video or telephone. Your healthcare provider will be able to check how you’re doing, diagnose any problems you have, and come up with a treatment plan for you. Your video won’t be recorded or saved. For more information about televisits, read our resources Televisits at MSK and Tips for Your Televisit.

How to Sign Your Telehealth Consent Form

Before your televisit, you will need to sign a consent form explaining what you can expect from your televisit. You will need to sign this form on your own. Your caregiver won’t be able to sign the form for you.

You can sign your consent form on your computer or smart device (smartphone or tablet) using a web browser. To sign your consent form, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your MyMSK account. You can do this by going to my.mskcc.org (see Figure 1).
