The Emergence of Telehealth and Teletherapy

Updated: Jul 25, 2019

From patient monitoring devices to meditation apps, the use of telehealth has accelerated rapidly, and for good reason. Telehealth – the use of communication and information technologies to access health care services remotely – has provided a great benefit to many patients. Not only does telehealth bring healthcare services to you at any moment, but also it addresses the scarcity of providers in remote areas, the lack of proximity to health care facilities, the restricting schedule, and the unreasonable cost – $80-300 for just 45-60 minutes.

Online therapy has proven to be significantly cheaper with the use of unlimited texting, while in person therapy limits your discussions to once a week. Moreover, a new study published in the June issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior suggests there might be another problem at play when low-income and black people attempt to schedule psychotherapy appointments: They never make it past the first voicemail and psychotherapists are more likely to offer appointments to middle-class white people than to middle-class African-Americans or to working-class people of any race.” Whereas, using online therapy speeds up this process and allows you to start building a relationship with your therapists right away. One of its most useful tools is the patient's ability to be matched immediately with a provider of their choice.


Among the many challenges that a new therapy patient faces – social stigma, lack of availability, mismatching leading to misdiagnosis , cost, etc. – AYANA is one tool that is able to alleviate them all. Indeed, if you characterize your safe space by a therapist that reflects your traits, values, and experiences, you should be entitled to it. With our app, you can find a therapist that is right for you – someone with the same ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, all while remaining anonymous – without leaving the house.

No one should have to settle or negotiate with an issue as critical as mental health as defined by our motto: “Finding the right therapist is not a privilege but a right.”
