Challenges

Absence of a telehealth solution amidst covid-19

With many behavioral health professionals offering telehealth services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Kontos Psychotherapy was finding a hard time maintaining a connection with clients while staying HIPAA-compliant.

An array of information sharing methods

Clients and Kontos Psychotherapy therapists exchanged information from several resources, including clinical resources, office forms, community-based resources, pictures, documents, appointment information, etc. Unfortunately, exchanging these on several platforms to stay HIPAA-compliant became time-consuming and challenging.

No person-centered communication tool

Solution

Maintaining an in-person type of connection

Hucu.ai helped Kontos Psychotherapy stay connected with clients remotely in the safety of their homes while still booking and continuing sessions via Hucu.ai amidst the pandemic. Through Hucu.ai’s video calling feature, Kontos Psychotherapy gave its clients an in-person service experience and continuity of care.

Centralized communication in one hipaa-compliant texting platform

Kontos Psychotherapy shifted from sharing information through emails, faxes, texting, telephone to just one platform: Hucu.ai. Therapists and clients simply attach videos, pictures, documents, weblinks, forms, and other multimedia in Hucu.ai and share within minutes.

Hucu.ai supports a person-centered care approach

Kontos Psychotherapy created ‘channels’ for specific patients in Hucu.ai and included the patient’s family members, clinical and administrative staff members as well as external providers to discuss the patient’s care plan. This alone helped increase their customer satisfaction like never before.
