Community Care Physicians is committed to leveraging technology to improve our patients' experiences and access to our care. VICA (Vik-uh; IPA: vɪkə) stands for Virtual Care and is Community Care Physicians' telemedicine app. VICA is currently being used for patients of Schodack Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. The app allows you to receive care from one of Schodack’s local practitioners in real time using video chat on your iPhone or iPad.

Just like a traditional doctor’s visit, you can see the provider and the provider can see you.

However with VICA, now you don't have to drive to our office or wait in our waiting room. Using your smart device, you can receive care from anywhere in New York State for a number of common conditions — like gastrointestinal issues, flu, colds and coughs, rashes, UTIs, and more, and even for certain follow-up visits.

Our providers can even write prescriptions for you. Wouldn't you sometimes prefer your living room over the exam room?

The Schodack Difference

As a patient of Schodack Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, we know you. When you seek care using our VICA Virtual Care app, you are still receiving care from the practitioners in our office; those who know you, have access to your medical record, and can easily and quickly communicate with your regular primary care practitioner. Your VICA visit is also documented in your permanent medical record at our office. This allows for easier communication between your CCP providers. Additionally, if the VICA provider recommends you be seen in an office or by a specialist, they can easily help schedule you in another office of Community Care Physicians to which they have access.

If you are not a patient of our office yet and would like to use the VICA app, rest assured – we welcome new patients! Just contact our office for more information about our practice and we’d be happy to establish you for care. Learn more on the VICA FAQ pages.
