UnitedAg Expands Relationship with Teladoc, Adding Behavioral Health and Other Clinical Specialties

Teladoc, Inc. (NYSE:TDOC), the undisputed leader in telehealth, providing access to care for millions, announces that UnitedAg has expanded the telehealth benefits for its 35,000 insured members to include coverage for behavioral health, dermatology and smoking cessation. With strong utilization across Teladoc’s wide array of general health services, along with a high percentage of repeat telehealth visits, UnitedAg sees significant value in providing these additional services to its members.

“A big part of the value equation that we offer our members and their families is access to cost-effective, high-quality care through Teladoc,” said Kirti Mutatkar, president and CEO of UnitedAg. “Since we joined Teladoc in July 2015, our members have continued to use and rely on their telehealth benefits, so the choice to further expand this relationship is a logical one.”

UnitedAg is an Association Health Plan serving more than 600 agricultural member groups and over 35,000 covered lives. The tele-behavioral services from Teladoc are expected to be of significant value as farming and mental health experts cite two key factors – a reluctance to seek help and the distance many farms are from mental health care centers and professionals – for the higher than average rate of behavioral health issues among agricultural workers. Telehealth can assist in overcoming both of these barriers.*

“The true value of the full suite of Teladoc clinical capabilities is realized when our partners like UnitedAg extend access to their members, and those most in need can count on quality care, wherever they are,” said Jason Gorevic, chief executive officer, Teladoc. “As we expand our relationship with UnitedAg, we will continue our active engagement with them and their members to assure that all parties derive maximum value from the Teladoc telemedicine services.”

* According to a study from the CDC, men who work in the farming, fishing and forestry industries had the highest suicide rate of any occupational group.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
