WASHINGTON - Jan. 30, 2019 - PRLog -- Dr. Keith Ablow, best-selling author and leading psychiatrist, has teamed up with telemedicine provider, DocsConnect, to expand the reach of mental health care.

Founder and CEO of DocsConnect, Pamela Mathews, was personally impacted by America's wounded healthcare system and the lack of access to mental health providers.  A beloved family member endured years of suffering due to mental health misdiagnosis. Mathews says, "I took a family member into my home for several months and witnessed what the wrong diagnosis can do to a person. I fear they will not live a normal life and potentially end up in the prison system."  Pamela's mission is to be a part of the solution.

With a background in healthcare, Mathews spent several years researching and connecting the dots to come up with the perfect formula.  In 2014, she founded DocsConnect, a telemedicine provider for primary and specialty healthcare, and brings together industry leaders to achieve results.  Mathews says she wants to "help those that have been living with a misdiagnosis with the hope we can actually give them a better quality of life."

The most recent addition to her formula is Keith Ablow, MD, who is working alongside DocsConnect, to create an automated, state-of-the-art, responsive system to prevent patients from falling through the cracks.  Patients can access a mental health provider from their phone, tablet or computer. Immediate access reduces emergency room visits and prevents skyrocketing healthcare costs. Mathews believes, "We need to educate behavioral health patients so they know the services are available. Telepsychiatry only works if you increase the awareness and the patients actually use the system. The higher the utilization is with telepsychiatry the more optimal care a patient receives."

Dr. Keith Ablow is one of America's leading psychiatrists with board certification in adult, adolescent and forensic psychiatry.  A best-selling author, 10-year Fox News Contributor and noted blogger, Dr. Ablow has a thriving multi-city private practice. According to Dr. Ablow, "In the face of skyrocketing rates of psychiatric illness, our mental health care system must become more reliable at delivering critically needed care to people with depression, anxiety, addiction and other conditions. There are endless waits for care and far too much inferior, shoddy or uninspired treatment. DocsConnect will be an important part of getting cutting edge mental health care solutions out to the people who need them."

By partnering with Ablow and other leaders in the healthcare industry, the young, innovative DocsConnect is raising the bar when it comes to treating those with mental illness.
