QoL Healthcare Company Acquires 1DocWay

QoL Healthcare Company Acquires 1DocWayGenoa, a QoL Healthcare Company announced this week the launch of Genoa Telepsychiatry with its acquisition of 1DocWay.

1DocWay is the nation’s largest outpatient telepsychiatry provider that offers a “simple, easy-to-use platform” to connect mental health providers and patients.

Genoa says it’s continually looking for ways to innovate and better serve the behavioral health community.

Many of the Community Mental Health Centers that work with Genoa are facing increased demand for support as they strive to improve access to care for the communities they serve.  One significant barrier to fulfilling that mission is the nationwide psychiatry staffing shortage.  Genoa is committed to pioneering solutions that can add value to its relationships and improve patient care.

“There are currently over 4,000 mental health professional shortage areas nationally and we will need to be creative to solve this problem. Genoa has worked with our partners for over 15 years to deliver innovative solutions for the unique needs of the behavioral health community.  When our partners suggested that we help them find novel remedies to their shortage of psychiatrists, we set out to find ways to assist. We believe telepsychiatry can be a key answer as its early adopters have touted its acceptance and efficacy in delivering accessible and quality mental health care,” said Mark Peterson, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Corporate Development of Genoa. “The shortage of psychiatrists is a major issue in the behavioral health industry, and the addition of 1DocWay’s team and tools will help us provide a solution to this challenge.”
