BELLEVUE, WA - February 3, 2014 - CoroWare, Inc. (OTCQB: COWI) announced today that iTherapy™ has selected CoroCall™ HIPAA Compliant Videoconferencing® for delivering secure online video consultations and counseling services.
People in need of mental health care services who live in remote areas or who, due to illness or mobility problems, have difficulty using in-person counseling services. Moreover, mental health professionals using free, non-HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing services for delivering mental health counseling services have been warned against and in some cased placed on probation.
To meet the growing demand for online therapy services that are secure and HIPAA compliant, iTherapy selected CoroCall HIPAA Compliant Videoconferencing for delivering secure online video consultations and counseling services.
"We chose CoroCall because we were impressed with the audio and video quality, ease of use and customer support," said Carol Pulley, Partner at iTherapy. "Using CoroCall, our therapists can now offer their patients affordable group tele-counseling, knowing that everyone's privacy and security will be protected because CoroCall is secure and HIPAA compliant."
Built upon a scalable video communications and collaboration platform from Vidyo™, CoroCall is a high definition video conferencing cloud service that is available anytime and anywhere on tablet devices (iPad™ and Android™), Smartphones (iPhone™ and Android), and desktop platforms (Windows™, Macintosh™, Linux™).
"We are very pleased that iTherapy chose CoroCall to deliver their affordable and convenient online counseling program," said Lloyd Spencer, president and CEO of CoroWare. "iTherapy's clients will benefit from the experience of knowing their counseling sessions are conducted in a confidential manner."
According to a study by WinterGreen Research, the global market for telemedicine push-to-talk smart phones and tablets will increase dramatically over the coming years, from $201 million in 2012 to $4.3 billion by 2019. Home tele-care is an appropriate and cost-effective way of managing chronic care patients in both urban and rural settings.
"In order to deliver these services, HIPAA compliance is a critically important requirement for home tele-care service providers," said Susan Eustis, President and Senior Analyst at WinterGreen Research. "CoroCall provides all of the necessary videoconferencing security, patient anonymity, and audit tracking requirements to achieve HIPAA compliance."
CoroCall offers the most flexible pricing plans in the videoconferencing industry because CoroWare integrated its highly scalable and affordable cloud-based billing solution with Vidyo's award winning software based video communications and collaboration platform. In addition, CoroCall supports videoconference recording and webcasting so that online video counseling companies can record and webcast counselor training sessions.
iTherapy offers a variety of online counseling services including, psychological (depression, anxiety, eating disorders, etc.) life and career coaching, nutritional, relationships, and prescription consulting at the client's preferred time, via private, HIPPA compliant, online video, telephone or chat, and from the comfort of the client's home, office or location of their choice.
