Baptist Health Virtual Care Offers Care Anytime, Anywhere from Trusted Physicians

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Technology is changing the way health care is delivered and Baptist Health is committed to making innovation a part of the system’s daily routine.

Through the launch of the Baptist Health Virtual Care app, Baptist Health continues to respond to the changing health needs of the communities it serves by delivering care to patients where they are. The online consultations via a private, secure connection not only save patients travel time, but will get them on the road to recovery faster.

The app provides care options for primary, urgent and pediatric needs. To access care anytime and anywhere, install the Baptist Health Virtual Care app on your mobile phone through the Apple App Store or Google Play and create an account.

Most online doctor visits – at a cost of $55 ­– take about 10 minutes. Doctors can review your history, answer questions, diagnose, treat and prescribe medication as necessary. Any prescriptions will then be sent to the pharmacy of your choice.

Among the ailments and illnesses treated are:

  • Allergies                
  • Asthma
  • Back strains 
  • Cold sores
  • Common cold 
  • Influenza (flu)
  • Minor burns  
  • Rashes
  • Sinus infections
  • Stomach flu
  • Upper respiratory illness     
  • UTIs

Parents and guardians can add their children who are under age 18 to their account and have doctor visits on their behalf. Enroll yourself first, then add your child as a dependent.
