Naval Hospital Jacksonville now offers a faster, innovative way to complete health visits without a trip to the hospital or clinic: virtual visits. The Navy Care app enables patients to have a live, virtual visit with a clinician, using a smartphone, tablet, or computer. It is private, secure, and free. Active duty, retirees and families can also use the virtual app for follow-up medical visits. The Navy Care app allows Sailors and Marines to complete their Period Health Assessment (PHA) from their unit or home. To use Navy Care, a patient needs a video-enabled device that's connected to a 3G, 4G LTE, or wireless (Wi-If) network. The Navy Care app launched at Naval Hospital Jacksonville in February, 2018.
