LOS ANGELES, May 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carenection, a telehealth marketplace with a mission to improve the quality, accessibility and affordability of healthcare is pleased to announce a collaboration with InSight, the leading national telepsychiatry provider company.
The collaboration was made official at this year's American Telemedicine Association Expo in Los Angeles, California.
Carenection provides a private, HIPAA-compliant broadband network that offers a scalable, unified telemedicine solution for organizations and systems implementing telehealth.
"We are excited to work with a validated telehealth platform and experienced partner like Carenection," says Geoffrey Boyce, InSight's Executive Director.
InSight's mission is to increase access to behavioral health care through thought-leadership and advocacy, and both InSight and Carenection share a commitment to using technology to appropriately bring care into the organizations with which they partner.
"We make a point to work with leaders in the field who are transforming their respective industries. InSight's history of advocacy, quality care and diverse telebehavioral health experience make them a great fit for the Carenection network," says Jamey Edwards, CEO of Carenection.
"Our goal is to be able to integrate a variety of quality telehealth services through one fluid network and device."
Other members of the Carenection network include best in class telemedicine organizations like Advanced ICU Care, Language Access Network and Telespecialists.
Carenection currently has over 350 hospitals, clinics and health systems within its network. "We see a lot of clients looking for a solution to improve their behavioral health services, so we are enthused to be able to offer InSight's services and provider network as an option," says Chip McIntosh, General Manager of Carenection.
"With InSight there are options for behavioral health services from all levels of behavioral health providers across all settings."
InSight has been in the telebehavioral health space for the past 16 years and works with organizations across the continuum including hospitals, health systems, ACOs, clinics, correctional facilities, residential programs, skilled nursing facilities and beyond. InSight also recently launched a resource-based program to share telepsychiatry best practices with health systems, ACOs and individual hospitals.
"We are looking forward to increasing access to behavioral health services in settings across the continuum through this connection with Carenection's delivery network and telehealth marketplace," says Branden Robinson, Sales Manager at InSight.
"ACOs and large health systems benefit from being able to access a myriad of telehealth services through a single network, especially as they grow in scope, scale and complexity."
