Our Services

01Veterans Health

Partners for Telehealth Solutions was founded to enhance the quality of life for Veterans that are caught up in the healthcare system while waiting to hear their benefit determination from the VA. Some can wait as long as 3 years – only to be told that their injury or chronic illness isn’t fully covered and they will pay to pay for healthcare out of their own pocket. For those who choose to dispute the VA’s determination, there is another interminable wait and, in the meantime, the illness or injury isn’t being treated.

That is one of the reasons why the suicide rate among veterans is staggering – one vet commits suicide every 65 minutes in America. But if they could get their full medical benefits in a shorter amount of time, many could be saved.

We recently purchased a bus which will serve as our Mobile Claims Unit. When completed, this 19-passenger bus will have 5 working stations with secure computer stations and all the necessary equipment to help a veteran file a disability claim. This Mobile Claims Unit will visit veterans in places where health resources are few and far between and help is hard to find. These are the veterans most vulnerable and the ones we need to reach.

  • Nearly 10 million U.S. veterans are aged 65 or older.
  • The risk of suicide for veterans is 21% higher when comared to civilian adults. A veteran commits suicide eery 65 minutes.
  • The largest group of homeless veterans are between the ages of 31 and 50.
  • War veterans and those still in the service often suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, depression and thoughts of suicide
  • Compared with this time last year, there are 70,000 more healthcare related appointments that tooks vets at least a month to be seen.

02Linen Closet

When a soldier leaves the military one of the challenges s/he faces is re-establishing a household. For many, it’s like starting from scratch and there are so many needs to fulfill it can be overwhelming.

That is why Partners for Telehealth Solutions created the Linen Closet. The goal is to provide veterans and their families with basic necessities as they reestablish themselves into the civilian sector. 

Vets must present a valid military ID, a DD214 or a valid VA identification card.  All items are dispensed based on need.  Some items are ongoing and other items are issued one-time only. There are limits per household and all donations are signed for at pick-up.

Listed below are some examples of most needed items.

Baby wipes

Baking pans

Blankets

Socks

03CellaPhone

There is a new approach to providing medical care to veterans and it’s called telehealth. Telehealth uses communications technologies to deliver care and case management to veterans. It effectively changes the location where healthcare services can be provided, making care accessible to veterans in their local communities and even in their homes. This is particularly crucial for veterans living in communities where health resources are few and far between. And at the crux of all this technology is something very simple – a cell phone.

Partners for Telehealth Solutions (PTS) provides free cell phones and mobile devices to veterans who utilize telehealth resources – and the truth is, there is too much demand to meet the need. In addition to supplying mobile devices, we also pay the veteran’s cell phone bill every month. To a veteran contemplating taking his life, a simple phone call on a cell phone can make the difference between life and death.

Cell phones are everywhere and we tend to take them for granted. But what if that cell phone was your lifeline? To a veteran, it very well could mean the difference between life and death.
