August 21, 2018

ATLANTA & NASHVILLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--TeleHealth Solutions and VisuWell today announced a partnership which will further accelerate the expansion of VisuWell’s telemedicine platform within the healthcare industry. Atlanta-based TeleHealth Solutions is a vendor-agnostic partner that supports every step involved in planning, implementing and supporting a telehealth system. Headquartered in Nashville and formerly known as WeCounsel, VisuWell modernizes today’s healthcare provider organizations through a platform that enables consumer-friendly access, facilitates engagement and extends virtual care delivery to better meet the needs of patients at reduced costs.

VisuWell is experiencing tremendous demand for its SaaS-based telemedicine platform and has enabled more than half a million sessions for healthcare providers to date. Under the terms of the agreement announced today, TeleHealth Solutions will provide implementation services as needed, including project management, clinical workflow assessment and technology deployment, to VisuWell’s rapidly growing base of provider customers.

“We are honored to partner with such an outstanding company as VisuWell and look forward to supporting the company’s success,” stated Ned Thurman, CEO of TeleHealth Solutions. “Providers within all specialties are increasingly turning to telemedicine to reduce costs and improve patient care. The growth in demand for VisuWell’s platform truly reflects the strength of its technology and satisfied base of healthcare provider customers across multiple specialties.”

VisuWell recently announced the completion of a new round of funding, which should further fuel sales growth and market expansion of its telemedicine platform. Investors include Longmeadow Capital of Longmeadow, Mass., and Point Judith Capital of Boston, among other participants.

“We are impressed with the expertise of the TeleHealth Solutions team, which has decades of healthcare experience and specializes in implementing telemedicine systems for healthcare systems and providers. Their in-depth knowledge of clinical workflows will be a tremendous benefit to our customers,” said Sam Johnson, CEO of VisuWell.

“We continue to make significant progress toward our goal of bridging the divide between where patients are physically located and their needed interventions and consults. One such example is the ever-important task of integrating the behavioral community into primary care, emergency and urgent care networks,” added Johnson.

VisuWell’s telemedicine platform serves specialties, including emergent telepsychiatry, endocrinology, family practice, geriatrics, mental health, OBGYN teleobstetrics, pediatrics, primary care, teleradiology, sleep telemedicine, telestroke and urgent care telemedicine.
