Jupiter, FL July 17, 2017 -
Jupiter Medical Center is making it easier than ever for patients to receive
convenient medical care with the launch of Care Anywhere, its new tele-health platform.
“At Jupiter Medical Center, our top priority is caring for the health
and wellness of our entire community - at all stages of life and at all
points on the health continuum,” said John D. Couris, Jupiter Medical
Center President and Chief Executive Officer. “Care Anywhere allows
us to continue to meet this objective by providing access to high-quality,
affordable care when and where our community needs it.”
Care Anywhere is a private, secure and easy way for anyone to get convenient,
cost-effective and immediate medical care anywhere – from home,
the office or any other location – using a smartphone, tablet or
computer. Through the platform, a medical provider interviews each patient
and makes a diagnosis, much the same way he or she would in a traditional
urgent care visit. Providers can treat many common conditions or illnesses,
such as colds, fever, rash, stomach flu, sinus infections and pink eye,
as well as prescribe medications.
Accessing Care Anywhere is simple. Download the Care Anywhere app (for
Apple OS or Android mobile device) or visit the Care Anywhere website
at jupitermed.com/careanywhere. Once patients have downloaded the app
or logged into the website, it takes just a few minutes to begin a virtual
visit with a provider. A typical visit lasts about 10 minutes. Providers
are available Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“In today’s busy world, there are times when getting to the
doctor’s office just isn’t possible – either it is after
office hours or you’re simply unable to make the trip,” explained
Judy Magalhaes, MSN, RN, Jupiter Medical Center’s Vice President
of Ambulatory Services. “As our neighbors continue to seek more
convenient, cost-effective and integrated health care options, Jupiter
Medical Center is here to meet their needs with a menu of convenient care
Care Anywhere represents the latest component to Jupiter Medical Center’s
convenient care offerings, which includes three urgent care facilities.
All centers offer complete urgent care health services, including on-site
laboratory testing and x-rays to rapidly diagnose and treat urgent medical
conditions and minor trauma. Services to support healthier living, such
as flu shots, lab services, travel medicine, pre-employment testing or
preoperative clearance, are also available.
In addition, Care Anywhere service is backed by the hospital with the highest
patient satisfaction in the region, and quality and safety scores that
rank among the best in the nation. After a video visit, if it is determined
patients need additional medical treatment, Care Anywhere can refer them
to a Jupiter Medical Center specialist - maintaining a continuum of convenience,
care and service.
The fee for a virtual visit is $49, payable by credit card. Insurance is
not accepted. For more information about Care Anywhere or to learn more
