New & Improved!!
Our new improved Virtual Therapy Connect platform is here! We've worked hard to evolve our services while maintaining the unfettered, easy to use controls you've come to expect from Virtual Therapy Connect. With our new platform you'll get a full range of video, voice, text, and e-mail services all in one place-easily accessed from your Virtual Office! We focused on keeping our interface simple, while behind the curtain we've added top-tier security features. We know how important patient privacy is to you and your practice, so we specifically built this communication platform to protect every transmission with complex data encryption methods (strong enough even for the military). Now you can communicate with ease and still feel secure that your patients' sensitive information is safe and your practice is HIPPA compliant.
We're excited to bring you a trifecta of security, simplicity and flexibility. Communicate with clients any way you choose from your convenient Virtual Online Office! Our Virtual Therapy platform works on a variety of operating systems and browsers, so we're confident you'll find a combination that works great for you! Our purpose in creating this comprehensive, all-in-one tool from the ground up was to combine functionality with security. We've added encryption measures to every step of the process. Take a look at some of the new features we've implemented to protect patient privacy and ensure regulatory compliance:
- Your virtual office website will be password protected so that only registered users have access.
- All e-mail communications between patient and therapist area also secure and password protected.
- Text chat sessions are real-time, fully encrypted and completely private between therapist and patient. We don't store or audit any information contained in a text chat session.
- Protected Health Information (PHI) is the focus of many HIPPA regulations. We store this information in encrypted form using proven industry encryption standards.
- Each video communication is a unique event that is never recorded or stored.
- Our new communication tool is a closed communication system - it is dedicated only to users registered with Virtual Therapy Connect.
- We've made all of our servers completely secure and set up monitoring and auditing features so that we can continue to offer HIPPA compliant services in the future.
The bottom line is that our communications platform allows you to take advantage of the flexibility and freedoms afforded by technological developments to help you see clients easier and more conveniently. With Virtual Therapy Connect, your office is wherever it needs to be!
Participating in Visual Teleconferences is Easy!
All you have to do is log into your Free Virtual Therapy Connect account to connect with your therapist. We've made it as easy as possible with intuitive controls. All you need is a webcam, a microphone, a simple pair of headphones and an internet connection! Teleconferencing gives you the flexibility to meet with your therapist for scheduled appointments when a face-to-face session is not possible.
Perhaps you do not or cannot drive. Perhaps your schedule is highly changeable so that finding time for appointments is challenging or hit-and-miss. Perhaps where you live is subject to inclement weather that could prevent or inhibit you from attending a face-to-face session. Videoconferencing eliminates these issues so that you can concentrate on what happens during your session—not on the factors that precede it.
Real-Time Online Chat
Connect with a Therapist for Secure Text Chat Sessions!
Perhaps you prefer to communicate with written word and/or you do not want to be seen visually by your therapist, then our secure online text chat may be the mode you prefer for connecting with a therapist. It offers the ability to communicate in real-time with text that is fully encrypted and completely private between therapist and patient. We don't store or audit any information contained in a text chat session.
Our text chatting can also be used during a video-teleconferencing session to offer additional details or links to resources that may be discussed during the video session.
The Solution You've Requested
We've listened to you. Many of our clients requested access to a confidential and encrypted messaging solution that could be used as part of the therapeutic process. With Private Messaging by Virtual Therapy Connect, now you have it!
You can review any messages that your practitioner has sent to you while you’re waiting in their Virtual Office. You can also use the network to send a private message to your therapist.
Virtual Therapy is Easy to Use; it Mirrors a Traditional Session
Each practitioner has a unique and secure online office where clients can read and send private messages to and from their therapists, access forms posted by their therapist, pay their bill and conveniently check in for a scheduled Virtual Therapy session.
Virtual Offices are comfortable and secure—because they are private. No more sharing a waiting room with a stranger, which can make some individuals nervous. By logging into your practitioner’s Virtual Office a few minutes before your session, you’ll have time to gather your thoughts and take a few deep and calming breaths.
Our list of qualified third party-verified practitioners is growing!
Take advantage of our growing network to find the therapist who's right for you or connect with your existing therapist. If your therapist isn't already a member of Virtual Therapy Connect but you want to have the option of virtual therapy sessions when you need additional scheduling flexibility, why not ask your practitioner to learn more about our community of professionals?
Once you have a free client account, you'll be able to browse our network providers and experience greater access to care than ever before! Virtual therapy gives you the freedom to keep up with your changing needs.
