This service is currently available on a limited basis for participants in Children’s Mercy Pediatric Care Network who’ve been provided an access code.
KidCare Anywhere offers you access to a Children’s Mercy pediatric provider in minutes via smartphone, tablet or computer to help treat your child’s non-emergency conditions. Providers can discuss, provide guidance, and often treat your child’s minor ailments and illnesses from the comfort of your own home — or anywhere — offering you a convenient solution from experts who specialize in treating children. In fact, Children’s has been repeatedly recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals.”
Sometimes it’s the little things that matter most, like when your child needs to be seen but your pediatrician’s office is closed. KidCare Anywhere offers the following important features for families:
· Available 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., 7 days a week
· Be seen by a Children’s Mercy pediatric provider
· Available via smartphone, tablet or computer for video appointments
· Little to no waiting, often seeing a provider in minutes
When to use KidCare Anywhere:
We can provide guidance for common conditions, such as fever, cough, cold, allergies, sore throat, minor rash, minor strains, upset stomach or other minor symptoms. Children with serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses should go directly to the emergency room.
Following the appointment, your provider may order a prescription when appropriate, sent to your preferred pharmacy.
Getting started is simple. Registration is always free. Download KidCare Anywhere app, take a couple minutes to register by answering a few brief questions. Then, use the app when minor illnesses occur. Your visits are always private and secure.
If you use Apple Health, you can choose to share your health information with the provider during your virtual video visit, such as heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, blood glucose levels, weight, nutritional information, and respiratory rate.
We continue to improve the patient experience with these new features:

Ratings and Reviews
Every time I have used this service I have had great experiences. They are able to keep me from having to sit in the ER for hrs.
A huge help!!
We love Children's Mercy and this is another reason to love them even more! A quick app to access a Children's Mercy doctor instead of running to an urgent care center or the ER is a life saver!
