If you’re feeling sick there’s an app for that. HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital has launched “Anytime Care,” a smartphone and tablet app that allows medical professionals to diagnose patients, and even prescribe medicine, from afar.
The app can be used to diagnose non-emergency health concerns, but may lead to a recommendation to go in to the actual office for an appointment. After the app has been downloaded, patients simply request a visit and wait for the next available provider. Using the app will cost $29 per visit. Providers will be available 24/7, 365 days a year.
