CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WeCounsel Solutions, LLC (www.wecounsel.com), a Chattanooga-based telemedicine software company, has been selected by MedOptions, Inc. (www.medoptionsinc.com) to be the primary provider of telehealth software for its telemedicine division, MedOptions Connect™. MedOptions is the largest outsourced provider of behavioral health services to skilled nursing and assisted living facilities in the nation.
The WeCounsel – MedOptions partnership will provide MedOptions Connect™ clinicians with a secure, easy-to-use and HIPAA-compliant software platform that will improve operational efficiencies and ultimately provide more accessibility to critical behavioral health and elderly mental health care services to patients anywhere – including those in rural areas of the country where specialized care is often not available. It furthers the MedOptions Connect™ mission of bringing world-class care to patients everywhere, regardless of their proximity to specialized physicians and behavioral/mental health professionals.
For WeCounsel, the deal means further validation of its product and the opportunity to work alongside a marquee partner on an innovative and important use case for its telemedicine software solution. The new partnership lends itself well to WeCounsel's mission, which is to increase access to mental health care through virtual patient engagement. WeCounsel recently announced the close of its Series A funding (more information here: http://www.wecounsel.com/funded/), which will be used to expand the team and operational footprint of the company to support this and other exciting projects that are on the horizon.
"We are very pleased to announce our partnership with MedOptions today and look forward to working with their team to implement our solution across the hundreds of facilities they serve," WeCounsel's Founder and CEO, Harrison Tyner said. "We continue to be told, time and again, that our solution is the benchmark for behavioral telemedicine software, and to have the endorsement of an industry-leading company like MedOptions really drives that point home."
WeCounsel software is already in use by MedOptions Connect™ telehealth clinicians in Western Massachusetts and will be rolled out to all MedOptions telehealth facilitators as a result of this agreement.
