The RTVS Quick Reply RheumVision pathway is for rural and remote healthcare providers who need the support of a Rheumatologist.

Call RTVS Rheumatology

A RheumVision Rheumatologist is available weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to help physicians, nurse practitioners and other specialists to manage adult patients with inflammatory rheumatologic conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, connective tissue diseases, vasculitis, or other similar autoimmune diseases, who are unable to see a rheumatologist in a timely manner.


Three-way video appointments with the patient and physician present are preferred, since visual data from the encounter provides important information. Additionally, the RheumVision rheumatologist can provide longitudinal care for the patient until the closest local rheumatologist can assume care.
