Jupiter Medical Center rolls out telehealth program

Jupiter (Fla.) Medical Center launched "Care Anywhere," a telehealth platform available via smartphone, tablet or computer, July 17.

During a 10-minute "Care Anywhere" visit, a provider will interview each patient to diagnose for common, non-emergency conditions like colds, rashes and sinus infections. If a patient needs additional medical treatment, a provider can write prescriptions or refer a patient to a Jupiter Medical Center specialist.

"Care Anywhere" appointments will be available seven days a week, as early as 8 a.m. and as late as 8 p.m., depending on the day. Each virtual care visit will cost $49, with insurance not accepted.
