Fort Frances, ON - March 21, 2023 – The Fort Frances Family Health Team and Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Fort Frances Branch has launched the use of SeamlessMD, a leading Digital Care Journey platform, to engage with and remotely monitor patients through their Mental Health care journey. As part of CMHA Fort Frances’ Remote Care Monitoring Program, this collaboration with SeamlessMD aims to serve vulnerable clients in the Fort Frances community across Northwestern Ontario who are experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression, and empower them to actively participate in their own healthcare.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with SeamlessMD in bringing this client-centered program to the community and further our mission of providing assistance for mental health patients,” says Pauline Hyatt, Director, Services, CMHA Fort Frances Branch. “Our care teams can use the SeamlessMD app to connect with and educate patients, help them track their progress, and remotely monitor patients in real-time and intervene sooner for patients at-risk.”  

Using SeamlessMD’s app-based platform, patients of the CMHA Fort Frances Family Health have access to specialized resources and digital care plans using their own device (e.g., smartphone, tablet, computer). The platform provides a variety of tools such as an evidence-based mental health education library covering a wide range of topics such as medications, therapy and harm reduction tactics; automated reminders and health checks, including trackers for mood, anxiety, and medication compliance; and recommendations for self-care such as coping strategies.

Fort Frances care teams can also track recovery progress and remotely monitor individuals through alerts and dashboards to provide in-time recommendations for patients based on their current mental health as needed. 

“SeamlessMD is proud to partner with the CMHA Fort Frances as they continue to expand access to mental health support for Northwestern Ontario residents and communities through digital health innovation,” said Dr. Joshua Liu, CEO at SeamlessMD. “We are committed to supporting patients' mental and emotional health through efficient and effective virtual care and believe that the education and reminders delivered through our Digital Care Journey platform will be an invaluable resource to their Mental Health Remote Care Monitoring program.”
