New telehealth service allows patients to connect with a provider on the go
JONESBORO, Ark. – This month, St. Bernards launched a virtual care program called St. Bernards Go. Anyone in the state of Arkansas can download the St. Bernards Go app or go to stbernardsgo.com to connect with a provider in Jonesboro in minutes.
This service allows the patient to see a provider from the convenience of the patient’s home, office or anywhere in Arkansas. St. Bernards is the only health system in the area with this new service.
St. Bernards Go can be used to treat a variety of conditions including allergies, common cold, cough, pink eye, fever, flu-like symptoms, nausea, vomiting, insect bites, sore throat, urinary tract infection, to name a few. After the online visit, the provider can diagnose, suggest follow up and prescribe medication, as appropriate.
Providers available through St. Bernards Go are medical doctors and advance practice registered nurses and are trained in urgent care. All providers are based in Jonesboro.
“Launching St. Bernards Go is another step in our ongoing commitment to make healthcare in northeast Arkansas as accessible and convenient as possible,” said Chris Barber, president and CEO of St. Bernards Healthcare. “With healthcare costs rising across the nation, we believe this is a program with the potential to assist patients and lower costs by providing access to early intervention and prevention.”
Here’s how it works:
- Download the St. Bernards Go: Virtual Care App
- Choose a provider
- Get medical care in minutes
The provider at St. Bernards will have safe and secure access to patient information, and the interaction automatically creates a record that can be shared with a primary care provider or other specialist.
