Telehealth Awareness Week: Great Speech Advocates the Value of Virtual Speech Therapy

As Telehealth Awareness Week® approaches, Great Speech, a leader in virtual speech therapy, stands at the forefront of raising awareness about the significant value and benefits of this innovative approach to helping people of all ages effectively address speech and communication challenges.

Great Speech will join the nationwide efforts during the observance September 17-23, 2023 to promote the advantages of telehealth services, particularly the transformative impact of virtual speech therapy to improve communication skills, gain self-esteem and enhance quality of life.

Telehealth Breaks Barriers: Accessing Specialized Care Anywhere

Telehealth has revolutionized access to healthcare, bringing specialized medical services directly to patients’ homes through a secure virtual platform. As we celebrate Telehealth Awareness Week, it is crucial to recognize how virtual speech therapy has become a game-changer, offering flexible, personalized and convenient therapy sessions that eliminate the need to travel to brick and mortar clinics. 

Great Speech’s nationwide network of 200+ licensed Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) ensures that patients can access specialized speech therapy care without geographical limitations. This is a significant step forward in breaking down barriers that once hindered individuals from accessing quality speech therapy services. Whether residing in rural areas or urban centers, patients now have the opportunity to receive expert care and guidance from highly qualified speech therapists, all from the comfort of their own homes.

Empowering Individuals: Transforming Communication Skills

Virtual speech therapy empowers individuals with a wide range of conditions to enhance their communication skills and regain their ability to effectively express thoughts, ideas and emotions, including:

  • Alzheimer’s and dementia-related skill loss
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Cognitive communication disorders
  • Head and neck cancers
  • Hearing loss
  • Language and articulation disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Stroke and Aphasia rehabilitation
  • Stuttering
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Voice disorders
  • and more.

By providing personalized therapy sessions tailored to each patient’s unique needs, Great Speech helps individuals achieve faster and more focused results, contributing to better healthcare outcomes.   

Value-Based Care: Optimizing Reimbursement and Outcomes

As healthcare continues to evolve towards value-based care models, the significance of delivering high-quality services while optimizing reimbursement is paramount. Great Speech recognizes the value of virtual speech therapy in value-based care, ensuring patients receive the specialized therapy they need promptly and effectively. Early detection of communication challenges and timely intervention can halt disease progression, leading to more positive health outcomes and lowering overall healthcare costs.

Hybrid Care Plan Model

One of the unique aspects of Great Speech’s virtual speech therapy is its hybrid care plan model. Patients benefit from synchronous live sessions with their speech therapists, enabling real-time interaction and personalized guidance. Additionally, patients have access to an asynchronous practice portal where they can complete “homework” assignments, extending the value of their live sessions and accelerating their progress.
