Patients will have access to mental health and addiction assessments through Think’s telemedicine software, improving access to quality care
Toronto, ON, July 28, 2021 – Think Research Corporation (TSXV:THNK) (“THINK” or the “Company”), a company focused on transforming healthcare through digital health software solutions, is pleased to announce its partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Association and the Mamaway Wiidokdaadwin Primary Care Team to bring mental health support to more patients in Central and Northern Ontario through Think’s leading telemedicine platform.
Through this project, Think’s VirtualCare telemedicine software will allow healthcare providers to conduct comprehensive assessments of people experiencing substance use issues, addiction and other mental health concerns in the Simcoe, Muskoka and Parry Sound regions of Ontario.
Leading practitioners with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Muskoka-Parry Sound and Simcoe County branches and the Mamaway Wiidokdaadwin Indigenous Interprofessional Primary Care Team will use Think’s software to conduct these assessments to better understand patients’ complex needs, provide withdrawal management services, and connect them directly with the most appropriate health and social services.
Think CEO Sachin Aggarwal said “The pandemic has shown how technology can help bridge gaps in care and reach patients who are often underserved in the healthcare system. When we improve access to care, we improve health outcomes.
“We are very proud to partner with both Canadian Mental Health Association branches and the Mamaway Wiidokdaadwin Primary Care Team to support mental health and substance use assessments in order to help deliver quality mental health and addiction support.”
CMHA Simcoe County CEO Dr. Valerie Grdisa said “We are delighted that Think’s VirtualCare software has created a digital solution that directly links our clients to our tri-agency team and provides them with the information they need in real time.”
