Psychologists at home / Telehealth

    MONTREAL, Feb. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Major health agencies in the world
report evidence of a marked shortage of mental health specialists. Canadians
in particular also find themselves with great problems of accessibility to
mental health services. This in turn, generates important repercussions on the
broader population. In direct reaction to the traumatic events that took place
on February 21 in Piedmont, Help-Online Consulting solicits assistance of the
media to inform the public, as well as healthcare establishments, of the
existence of a highly secure service which reaches into urban and rural areas.
It is, very simply, "home psychological"l service.

    Help-Online Consulting, launched in March 2007 by Mr. François Lefort,
Industrial Psychologist, offers to the general public a first-class team of
more than 20 health professionals with different specialities. Online services
are also routinely offered to businesses preoccupied with their employees, and
clients', health and well-being. Thus, Help-Online Consulting is an active
pioneer in different tele-health fields: it utilizes a highly secure internet
platform, supported by a state -of- the- art technology which bypasses
conventional health resources and facilitates instant and secure access to
specialized professionals.

    As our mission makes clear, Help-Online Consulting upholds foremost
respect of ethical and deontological standards for all professions involved in
tele-health, specifically, privacy and security of information. Remote
consultation through videoconference is a complementary resource the objective
of which is simply to compensate for the lack of availability and
accessibility of conventional resources.
    Those seeking secure, private, online consultation can chose amongst the
professionals available on the Help-Online Consulting website at A client organizes an appointment according to his/her
choice: credentials, specialization, availability, urgency, personal
preference. Typical sessions involve using remote internet technology (eg.
Webcam) which facilitates an emergency session without having to travel. Fees
for consultations vary depending on the professional, and are laid out clearly
on the web site. The site can quickly organize professional appointments and
expedite payment details.

    All transactions are secure and have been endorsed by KPMG.
    Consultation receipts will be provided for insurance and expense

    Finalist in two categories, Electronic Affairs- General Public and
Community Services during the award ceremony of the OCTAS 2008 (contest that
recognizes excellence in the field of Information Technologies in the province
of Quebec), Help-Online Consulting is the first North-American web portal in
telehealth based on virtual alliance. It represents a Quebec's initiative
never seen before in Canada!
