IHC Connect Care App and Diaper Bag Essentials

As a mom of three I'm all too familiar with that feeling when my little one is sick and all they want to do is cuddle or sleep. It's in that moment when I dread taking them to the doctor, even when I feel like they really need to be seen. It's the stress of quickly packing the diaper bag and getting the kids ready to head out the door. It's the crying and moaning of a little cutie that just doesn't feel her best. And it's knowing there will likely be a wait before the doctor can see us.


It's these reasons and more that I'm so excited for the new Intermountain Connect Care app that allows families to visit a doctor for certain urgent care conditions 24/7/365 simply using a phone or tablet. At only $49 a mobile visit, with some insurance plans accepted, it's a real game changer for moms who want to get their kids the care they need when it's not easy to get to the doctor's office. Whether at home or away when sickness hits, My Connect Care is there.

The Intermountain Health Care app will facilitate care from highly trained, board certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants with experience in clinics, urgent care, and hospitals that are specifically trained to provide care through telehealth. Your primary care physician will also be able to see the results of your visit and, when appropriate for your condition, prescribe and deliver prescriptions to your home or nearby pharmacy. As a result, you'll spend more time with your loved ones and less time in the doctor's waiting room!


In addition to the app, Intermountain Healthcare promotes diaper bag essentials for everyday health. If your child starts to feel ill and you need to check her temperature, Kinsa can plug into your phone for a reliable reading in 10 seconds. It will also help you track your child's temperature symptoms, medication, and photos which you have the option of sharing with your doctor for a more accurate diagnosis.

The Intermountain Healthcare First Aid kit has all the essentials you need when away from home, including a handbook, bandaids (with easy open tabs), gauze pad, cold pack, wet ones, latex gloves, tweezers, scissors, burn cream and insect bite relief. It's perfect for your car, purse, or diaper bag so you have first aid essentials wherever summer adventures take you.

For warm summer evenings when bugs are out, Insect Shield from WhiteSierra will help repel unwelcome mosquitos, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges. Insect Shield been tested and proven, is invisible and odorless protection, lasts through 70 launderings, and can be worn by anyone in the family. No more stinky sprays that leave residue on the skin!

You can feel confident you're summer ready and able to get the medical help your child needs through My Connect Care! {Disclosure: This post is sponsored and I'm receiving compensation to promote Intermountain Healthcare. Regardless, all opinions are honest and my own.}
