NEA Baptist Offers Virtual Visits Through MyChart
JONESBORO, Ark., April 1, 2020- NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital has launched a new on-demand video visit feature through the Baptist OneCare MyChart app.
This feature allows patients to schedule and conduct doctor’s appointments from their home or office, using a smartphone, computer or tablet. As with regular doctor’s appointments, patients may be required to pay co-pays or additional fees after their insurance is filed.
“We are excited to offer this virtual service to our community,” said Brad Parsons, Administrator and CEO of NEA Baptist. “By using the latest technology, we can offer our care and expertise to patients in their own homes. It’s a safe and secure way for the community to get medical care for minor conditions, especially if they have concerns about the coronavirus.”
Baptist OneCare MyChart also offers the Find Care Now feature, which allows users to view the closest NEA Baptist Urgent Care locations and wait times. Patients can also check in for their appointments from their phones.
NEA Baptist Health System, which comprises NEA Baptist Clinic, NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital and NEA Baptist Fowler Family Center for Cancer Care, is the only health system in the area using the MyChart electronic health record system, powered by Epic. The technologically advanced system includes a 228-bed hospital that offers cancer care, heart care, labor and delivery services, as well as a number of inpatient and outpatient services, emergency care, and surgical services including weight loss surgery, neurology, respiratory care, and pulmonary rehabilitation. NEA Baptist Clinic has over 110 physicians who practice more than 35 specialties and offer a wealth of services, from pediatrics to orthopedic services.
