SMA Healthcare’s mission is to improve lives through exceptional substance abuse and/or mental health services. As the society at large turns to digital tools to access care, SMA remains dedicated to providing its clients with the best care anywhere. eCare from SMA’s Telehealth Services is key in supporting this mission.
eCare uses common place technology to deliver exceptional personal care, connecting clients with theirSMA Care Team no matter where they are. eCare bridges Care Team access and expertise across distances, that may otherwise separate clients from the service best able to help them, through real-time interactive video visits with clinicians.
eCare from SMA Telehealth services removes barriers that may prevent clients from receiving convenient, accessible, high quality care where they are. It ensures that they can receive the care they need, even when individuals are not near the SMA Care Team or if the care they seek is across the region. It allows clients to access care at their preferred location — in remote areas, at home, in a clinic or anywhere they may need it, through their mobile or digital device.
This technology has the potential to improve quality of outpatient care to our current clients and make it accessible to more. So, what are the goals of this service?
- Make outpatient care accessible to people, no matter where they are located
- Make services more readily available or convenient for people with limited mobility, time or transportation options.
- Provide access to clinical specialists
- Improve communication and coordination of care among members of a health care team and a patient
- Provide support for self-management of health care.
Right now, only mental health and substance use therapy are available through the eCare service. But, there is more to come! If you are a current SMA client, contact your Care Team to see if eCare will work for you.
