Over 74 million children under the age of 18 have been suffering with some sort of mental disorders in the United States which is almost 25% of the total population in the country. At medcominds, every day we strive to help these patients, parents, and doctors by providing the best technology solutions to mental and behavioral disorders. Every parents want to provide the best care to their kids in the right time, they are the one who spent the most of time with patients and research have shown that finding a good counselling, making an appointment and most importantly working on the data driven approach with the patients have been a challenge. Parents and counsellors do not have any collaboration tool so that they can update the daily challenges and see the results. Going to the counsellors once a month is not the best and disconnecting for the entire month or until next visit alone can't give the best care to the patients.
At medcominds, we provide healthcare technology solutions, consulting and staffing to hospitals, clinics, counselling centers, clinical trial centers, and pharmaceutical companies.
