Anytime Pediatrics is a technology company built by a pediatrician for pediatricians who want to connect with patients in a way that is convenient and cost-effective for everyone – while supporting the medical home delivery model. We believe a strong provider-patient relationship is key to healthier children and better outcomes.
Anytime Pediatrics is different because we believe in the power of keeping care local. We partner with board-certified pediatricians and clinicians in communities nationwide, so if your schedule doesn’t allow us to connect your patients with you, we can connect them with your choice of:
- Local pediatrician
- Pediatric practice
- Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
- Pediatric urgent care
- Children’s Hospital
Partnering with Anytime Pediatrics also:
- Supports patient satisfaction
- Prevents loss of patients
- Promotes continuity of care
- Creates opportunities for new revenue generation
More than a platform – we want to help you succeed by offering a solution complete with:
- Marketing content & tools for informing patients about telemedicine
- Workflow customization
- Provider and staff training
- Ongoing support

How It Works
Our telemedicine platform helps you deliver the ease and convenience patients want — on your schedule and your terms. Here’s how it works:
01. You Decide
Choose the days, hours and what types of visits you’ll provide via telemedicine. We will customize your system to meet workflows: offer walk-in visits, scheduled appointments or both.
Add telemedicine to what you are able to provide via telephone to your after hours telephone triage partner or have nurses triage during the daytime.
03. Patient initiates visit
Patient joins at the scheduled appointment time via the Anytime Pediatrics website or mobile app, using a smart phone, tablet or computer. Offer your patients the option for after-hours walk-in visits and scheduled visits for:
- Behavioral health
- Developmental screening
- Lactation consultations
- Follow-up visits and more
04. You receive a notification
You are notified when a virtual visit request comes in on a day and time when you have designated availability. When a request comes in when you are not available, they can be routed to a pediatric clinician, pediatric urgent care or children’s hospital partner of your choice.
05. Telemedicine visit
The visit is conducted quickly and easily via video. Provide care, advise on follow-up care and more with the convenience of telemedicine.
76% of patients prioritize access to care over the need for an in-person visit with their provider.
American Hospital Association
77% of patients want access to virtual care.
The Advisory Board, 2017
46% of patients who use telehealth would otherwise go to urgent care; 5.6% would go to the ER.

What Physicians Are Saying
“The Anytime Pediatrics platform is so much better for me, my coordinators and the patient than the platform we used previously for telemedicine.
A mom recently requested a visit and had some challenges (she really just didn’t understand how to use her phone), but with the texting feature on the platform, we were able to get her going in 15 minutes. Had it been on our previous telemedicine platform, the same interaction would have taken 45 minutes to an hour, and the mom would have likely given up on Telemedicine and been on her way to a retail clinic.”Naomi Zilkha, MDLead Physician, Dept. of Telemedicine at Allied Physicians Group
“Anytime Pediatrics offers a smart combination of telemedicine technology and my telephone triage protocols. I’m excited to be working with Anytime Pediatrics to help parents, pediatricians and pediatric nurses interact in cost-effective, innovative ways.”Dr. Bart SchmittSchmitt Pediatric Guidelines LLC
“Anytime Pediatrics is taking telemedicine in a new direction.”Dr. Anastasiaphysician partner
“Anytime Pediatrics is a 'win' for all involved – patient, family, primary care provider, and the healthcare system as a whole. The model leverages the widespread use of technology to observe the child and discuss next steps with the family, all with lesser costs (not just financial) for the family and the system, while maintaining their connection to the medical home.”Chris Pruitt, MD

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Anytime Pediatrics?
Anytime Pediatrics is a telemedicine solution designed for the pediatrician on a mission to foster the physician patient relationship. Our platform exists to connect patients and pediatricians in a way that ensures patient and provider satisfaction, high quality care, and continuity of care. Anytime Pediatrics also helps physicians reduce loss of patients to other “providers” and expand their practice’s reach. Our simple, easy-to-use technology can be accessed from anywhere, using a smart phone, tablet or computer.
How is Anytime Pediatrics different from others in the telemedicine space?
Anytime Pediatrics is differentiated from others in the telemedicine space in three important ways:
- Our “Software as a Solution (SaaS)” model means we exist to help physicians build their practices thru collaboration – not competition.
- We believe in the power of keeping care local. This is why we work with board-certified pediatric practices and pediatric partners nationwide. If we aren’t able to connect your patients to you, we want you to guide them to partners you choose.
- Anytime Pediatrics was designed for pediatricians by a pediatrician, who understands that children need and benefit from specialized care that isn’t often found at the retail or urgent care clinic on the corner. Kids need their pediatrician.
What types of practices and specialties can use Anytime Pediatrics?
Anytime Pediatrics works with individual pediatricians, pediatric group practices, pediatric clinically integrated networks, pediatric urgent cares, and children’s hospitals. Imagine a network of pediatric care centered around the medical home.
Is Anytime Pediatrics HIPAA compliant and encrypted?
Yes. Our telemedicine platform is securely encrypted and all information is protected and shared in accordance with HIPAA compliance standards.
What if I have limited time or resources to staff a telemedicine program?
Anytime Pediatrics gives you complete control and options on how you want to provide telemedicine. You choose the hours, how to schedule, and what types of visits you’ll provide via telemedicine. Our solution also allows you to partner with other pediatric practices, urgent cares and/or children’s hospitals to help provide patient care.
How are health insurance claims handled with Anytime Pediatrics?
Each practice, state and region handles insurance reimbursement differently. Anytime Pediatrics will collaborate with you and your practice to determine if and how best to handle each scenario. If insurance is billed, the billing is done by the practice. We do take credit cards if the service is not covered. Your practice can set the fee for uncovered services.
Does Anytime Pediatrics provide any type of reporting or analytics?
Yes. Anytime Pediatrics can provide reports specific to call type, duration, and provider. Additional data is available as needed, and we are in the process of developing post-visit surveys for both providers and patients.
What will my patients’ experience be like when using this technology?
Whether accessing Anytime Pediatrics via our website or mobile app, the user/parent/guardian experience is a simple, speedy, and intuitive one. Scheduling a virtual appointment only requires three simple steps:
01. New users register for their free Anytime Pediatrics account by simply sharing their email address, creating and confirming a password, and clicking “Submit.” Returning users login quickly and easily using their email address and password.
02. New users are asked to share a bit about themselves, including:
- Name and contact information
- Health insurance provider and policy number (optional)
- Pediatrician’s name and contact information (so that we can route the appointment request appropriately)
- Payment information
03. The user then sets up the child’s profile, telling us:
- His / her name, birthdate, gender, height and weight, and about any allergies, current medications, and medical conditions
- Why care is being sought, with an option to upload photos that may be helpful in diagnosing and / or treating the child
That’s it! With a quick click of the “Submit” button, the appointment is requested and the user’s video appointment should be initiated shortly. Our average wait time is less than 10 minutes.

No. Both physicians and patients can access Anytime Pediatrics through the camera on their smart phone or tablet, or by using a computer with a camera.

Yes, but training is easy and doesn’t take long – typically in two hours or less. We will train you and your team (administrative, clinical, etc.) on both telemedicine best practices and how to use our software.
Will I have access to tech support over the long term?
Yes, we are here to support the technology solution and should you run into issues, we want to help. You will have options based on how much support you need.
