PMP Anywhere

PM Pediatrics Anywhere: Quality care for your child, more convenience for you.

With our new telemedicine service, a pediatric expert can care for your child—including checking their ears, throat, heart and lungs with state-of-the-art technology to diagnose most common pediatric conditions directly from the school nurse’s office.

In many cases, your child is cleared to immediately return to class so they’re not missing any school time—and you’re not missing work taking them to the doctor. If your child needs to be sent home, you can pick them up at school—and pick up any prescriptions along the way.

Now available at select schools in Alaska:

  • Eagle River High School
  • Goldenview Middle School
  • Gladyswood Elementary School
  • College Gate Elementary School
  • Girdwood Elementary School
  • Turnagain Elementary School
  • Willow Crest Elementary School

  • How much does a visit cost?

  • What if my child needs a prescription?

    Your clinician will immediately send it electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.

  • What if my child needs a school note?

    Your clinician can write a school excuse note. A copy can be accessed through your PM Pediatrics Anywhere account.

  • Who will be examining my child?

    All of our pediatric experts are physicians or nurse practitioners with pediatric experience, certification in pediatrics and licensed to practice in Alaska. They all meet the strict credentialing criteria of PM Pediatrics and must keep their certifications up to date in order to practice.

  • How do I get a copy of my child’s records?

    A full copy of their records is always available in your app.

    PM Pediatrics Anywhere uses a state-of-the-art, secure and HIPAA-compliant platform to store and transmit information.

    The following common pediatric problems can be diagnosed safely and accurately by telemedicine:

  • What is the quality of a telemedicine exam?

    Using state-of-the-art Tyto equipment, the quality of a telemedicine exam is comparable to an in-person one. The camera is able to visualize the ears, throat, and any rashes. The stethoscope gives a clear recording of heart, lung and abdominal sounds. We also obtain a full set of vital signs to give us an accurate picture of your child’s health.

  • Is the PM Pediatrics Anywhere app only good for school telemedicine?

    The PM Pediatrics Anywhere app allows you to access a pediatric expert 24/7/365 from the comfort of your home. Visits from home are comprised of a video visit only without the use of telemedicine medical devices.  Although we will be able to see your child and discuss symptoms, there are some problems that cannot be treated by video alone.  For full information about video visits, please click here.

  • Can anyone use the PM Pediatrics Anywhere app?

    The app is available 24/7/365 to anyone 26 years of age and younger.  Although school visits are limited to children in participating schools, anyone in Alaska may use the app at any time.

  • What if my school does not participate in the program?

    Our plan is to expand to other schools.  If you would like your school to participate, please have your school nurse or administrator reach out to us here for more information.

    PM Pediatrics Anywhere will treat any patients through age 26.
