Anytime Care allows patients to connect with providers in the comfort and privacy of their own home for only $29. There’s even an app to download on your smart phone.
Anytime Care uses technology to provide 24/7 medical care to patients using a computer or mobile device. Through a traditional phone call or online using a computer webcam, tablet or smart phone, patients connect with providers who can diagnose and treat issues that do not require emergency attention such as allergies, colds, flu, respiratory and sinus infections, bladder infections, bites and stings, fevers, headaches, pink eye, rashes, stomach flu, urinary tract infections, yeast infections and other health concerns.
“We are excited to make high-quality care convenient and affordable,” said Loren Hughes, MD, President of HSHS Medical Group. “Through digital devices patients use every day, Anytime Care offers access to experienced, board-certified providers at any time of the night or day.”
During the virtual visit, the provider evaluates the patient, makes a diagnosis and determines a treatment plan, which might include calling a prescription into a pharmacy or referring the patient to an emergency department if the case is serious.
With Anytime Care, health care becomes more convenient and less time consuming. By offering immediate access to a provider, it eliminates the need to schedule an appointment or drive to a doctor’s office.
“Virtual care makes health care available to patients across Illinois in the most convenient, cost-effective way possible,” said Melinda Clark, Chief Executive Officer.
