thera-LINK is a HIPAA-compliant online video service provider focused on the mental and behavioral health industry. The company launched their web solution in November of 2014 with rapid success in only one year. “As we listened to our customers, we heard time and again that they wanted to use an iPad or other tablet to join an online therapy session” said Carol Park, CEO. thera-LINK developed a native app for the iPad which offers the same seamless, easy-to use experience as their existing web platform. It was critical to the team that the iPad app offer a similar look and feel as the web as well as the same security and features. As part of their technology solution, thera-LINK provides scheduling, email reminders, custom waiting room options with music, and even credit card payment so the therapist can instantly receive payment for services rendered online.
“If you think about consumers today, so many people have an expectation of using whatever device is in their hand so this is just another opportunity to reach customers where they are,” Heather Potter, Chief Technology Officer said. “The number of people buying tablets is now surpassing those purchasing laptops or desktops so it just makes sense to move into that space”, she continued. According to recent research released by PewInternet (pewinternet.org), 45% of Americans now own a tablet and that number is rising rapidly.
To celebrate the launch of the app, thera-LINK hosted a launch party at Yard House in Addison, Texas. Local mental health professionals and technology experts attended the event. They also gave away an iPad with one year of service as well as goodie bags and t-shirts for all!
