Baxter Regional CARE, the urgent care app launched by Baxter Regional Medical
Center in early 2019, will be discontinued as of December 31, 2020. The
app, available on iOS and Android phones and tablets, will no longer be
accessible, but alternative telehealth options will still be available
through local clinics and their providers.
The decision to discontinue came as telehealth visits outside the app began
rising due to COVID-19, as urgent care app usage declined. Many local
providers are now offering the ability to schedule telehealth visits through
their individual clinics and practices. This model has shown to be a more
efficient way for Baxter Regional to offer telehealth services that better
serve our community.
“I believe our telehealth options outside of the Baxter Regional
CARE app are more than enough to continue providing excellent care to
every patient, every time,” stated Ron Peterson, President and CEO
of Baxter Regional Medical Center.
