BayCare Provides Access to Telehealth Services During Coronavirus Outbreak
As questions continue to rise throughout our community about COVID-19 and its symptoms, BayCare offers convenient access to high-quality care through a mobile app accessible with a smartphone or other digital device.
BayCare provides a telehealth service, BayCareAnywhere®, for individuals who want to avoid going into an urgent care or primary care clinic to see a doctor.
BayCareAnywhere is a 24/7 non-emergency telemedicine service offering virtual visits through a smartphone, tablet or computer. This service, which costs $59 per visit, uses secure, interactive video and audio communications to help patients connect to a health care provider live and in real time from home, work or while traveling.
Through BayCareAnywhere, providers have the ability to diagnose common conditions and illnesses such as sinus pain, cough, flu or cold, pink eye and skin rashes for adults and children 2 years and older. After each visit, prescriptions (if needed) are electronically submitted to a patient’s preferred pharmacy.
The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) encourages people who have lower-respiratory symptoms, and who believe they were exposed to the coronavirus through travel or contact with someone who traveled, to contact FDOH at (866) 779-6121 or COVIDfirstname.lastname@example.org. People who decide to seek medical care are asked to first call their primary care doctor or the facility so they can receive instructions and preparations can be made for their arrival.
