About us

We provide flexibility and ease-to-use telehealth services to ensure everyone can access mental health services. There is an urgency to expand the use of technology to help people who need routine care and keep vulnerable beneficiaries in their homes while maintaining access to the mental care they need. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, most people did not get mental health treatment because of the lack of services. Lastly, innovative uses of this kind of technology in healthcare provision are increasing because of its reliability.

What does telehealth mean? 

Telehealth — sometimes called telemedicine — lets your health care provider care for you without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. 

Benefits of telehealth:

  1.  Limited physical contact reduces everyone’s exposure to COVID-19 .
  2.  Virtual visits ensure you get health care wherever you are located – at home, at work, or even in your car.
  3.  Virtual visits cut down on travel, time off from work, and the need for child care.
  4. Virtual health care tools can shorten the wait for an appointment.
  5. Increased access to specialists who are located far away from your hometown.
