PyraMED Health Systems, a leading higher ed-specific electronic health record (EHR) software organization, and TimelyMD, a telehealth company specializing in higher education, are partnering to promote student health and mental health at colleges and universities across the country.
TimelyMD is the only student-first telehealth provider that offers a complete care solution for campus health, with on-demand medical care, on-demand mental health counseling, appointment-based counseling, psychiatric support and health coaching programs designed to meet the exact needs of any college or university. Its programs allow students at participating schools to have 24/7 access to free medical and/or mental health counseling visits anytime, from licensed physicians and counselors anywhere in the United States.
PyraMED’s collaboration with TimelyMD aims to work with existing schools’ Health and Counseling Centers to proactively expand and extend access to physical and mental healthcare, meeting the sharp increase of students’ demand for physical and mental health services. Having PyraMED and TimelyMD aligned enables customized programs to be developed to offer assurances that student/patient records can be securely shared, enabling college and university partners to provide continuity of care across their ecosystems.
The need for expanded telehealth resources for college students is particularly urgent as many colleges and universities have opted for online-only classes, while others carefully navigate returning to campus for the fall semester. Telehealth services can be an important way for students to connect to care during uncertain times.
“The decision to partner with TimleyMD was an easy one,” said Eric Wolgamott, CEO of PyraMED Health Systems. ”We had conversations with several Tele-health companies, however TimelyMD’s commitment to the college health space and approach to service was in lock step with our core beliefs. We couldn’t be more pleased to be the first EHR Vendor to partner with TimelyMD in the College Health Market.”
“Virtual access to medical care and mental health counseling has never been more important, and TimelyMD is proud of our affiliation with PyraMED to provide these vital services with colleges and universities, no matter where students may be,” said Luke Hejl, CEO of TimelyMD. “Increasing access to TimelyMD’s medical, counseling, psychiatry and health coaching programs furthers both of our missions to support the overall well-being of students.”
