February 23, 2022 – Starting this week, as part of Davidson-Davie Community College’s ongoing efforts to prioritize the health and well-being of the campus community, the college’s curriculum students and dually-enrolled high school students have been given free and immediate access to medical and mental health support through TimelyMD, the leading telehealth company specializing in higher education.
TimelyMD developed its proprietary TimelyCare technology to offer students a 24/7 extension of campus health and counseling center resources that is as easy and convenient as making a video or phone call. Through the TimelyCare app on their phone or other device, students can now select from a wide-ranging menu of virtual care options from licensed physicians and counselors in all 50 states – at no cost to them and without the hassle of traditional insurance – including the following:
Additionally, faculty and staff have access to support that empowers them to help students achieve a sense of well-being, live healthier lifestyles and improve their mental health.
TimelyCare allows students to see the profiles, faces and specialty care details of a diverse range of licensed physicians and counselors available to them. They can choose to meet with a specific provider or select the first available. Typical consultations begin within 5-10 minutes – less than the amount of time it takes to walk across campus.
TimelyCare’s ease of use, convenience and immediacy make it easier than ever for Davidson-Davie’s curriculum students and dually-enrolled high school students to get the help they need, when they need it. In fact, 60 percent of all students who have sought mental health support from TimelyMD said they would have done nothing if the service were not available to them.
“Our faculty and staff at Davidson-Davie Community College have worked hard to prioritize students’ well-being – especially during the stress of COVID – and I’m so pleased that we are able to offer this new, easy resource,” said Dr. Darrin Hartness, president of the college. “We are making care more readily available to students on their own schedule, encouraging a focus on mental as well as physical health, and in general helping our campus community be healthier.”
“College students said the number one thing their campuses can do to support them right now is provide more virtual services focused on their health and well-being, such as telehealth and teletherapy,” said Luke Hejl, TimelyMD CEO and co-founder. “Through TimelyCare, we are proud to deliver best-in-class virtual care to help Davidson-Davie Community College students thrive.”
