JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – UMMC 2 You, a telehealth urgent care service, is now open to the general public for same-day or next-day appointments.
The UMMC 2 You is now available to any Mississippian with WiFi capability, regardless of their insurance status. UMMC has expanded the reach to help eliminate barriers to care created by COVID-19, said Kyle Brewer, administrator of telehealth services at UMMC’s Center for Telehealth.
“Flu season is coming up, and a lot of people don’t want to get out, just like with COVID-19,” Brewer said. “If you think you’re sick, you might not want to get out and go to a clinic, but you still need care. That’s the benefit of UMMC 2 You,” he said. “We want to provide convenience to those who want to get care quickly, at home, work or school,” said Brewer.
Visits with a nurse practitioner typically take about 15 minutes and can be done anywhere in Mississippi with a WiFi connection for a smartphone, tablet or computer. Nurse practitioners can prescribe some medications, and also will refer patients to other providers as needed.
Minor medical conditions treated include:
- Upper respiratory issues
- Joint pain
- Other common health concerns
