Secure Group Session Video Conferencing

More and more therapy is happening virtually. Telehealth sessions can boost attendance for group members with busy schedules or those who find it challenging to make appointment times. That’s why Mend created a HIPAA-compliant group video conferencing platform that’s effortless for patients and providers. 

Clients click a link, input their date of birth, and are connected with the group. Providers click “Start Visit” to connect to their patients. Bandwidth requirements are minimal for all connected parties. Clients don’t need to download another new app to participate. They can enter and exit as needed, and the clear picture quality allows group members to see each other, communicate effectively, and connect. It doesn’t get any easier than Mend.

Streamlined Group Scheduling Process

Getting everyone in your group on the same scheduling system can be very difficult. Our scheduling tool allows you to create and manage single-group events and recurring sessions easily and efficiently. This feature streamlines the scheduling process, allowing clients to input their availability and find an ideal appointment time for the group. Providers can add or remove patients to the groups as needed.

Mend patient reminders use multiple touches, like smart texts, calls, and emails, to eliminate the possibility that group members miss appointments. Just another way to improve your group therapy engagement.

Convenient Group Session 


Mend eliminates the clipboard and pen for obtaining patient health information. Once group appointments are set up in Mend, digital forms can be sent out automatically. This information is stored securely and in compliance with the strictest health care regulations.

Patients love the convenience of sending forms digitally. Your staff will love that information moves automatically into the client’s electronic health record (EHR).
