There is more than one way to go and see a therapist. Some now suggest that Talkspace may be the best answer for those who live in our modern technological world. In a lot of ways this makes perfect sense. We should be able to use something like our smartphone to get mental health help if we need it. That is what Talkspace provides by connecting a patient with a licensed therapist via text.

The numbers don’t lie when it comes to Talkspace. It turns out that out of a population that they serve, they have seen a 25% reduction in the number of hospitalization cases in comparison to the general public over the same period of time. Those are very impressive results, and they spell out the idea that this type of therapy really works.

People like the prices on the plans offered by Talkspace. You can see for yourself that the offerings are between $32 and $45 per week depending on how many services you want. Some people require more therapy than others, and this is accounted for in the prices for the various plans.

A new partnership with Magallen Health is going to help Talkspace expand its audience in the very near future. The two companies are working together to provide services to the Magallen Health patients that do not already have access to Talkspace materials. In just a very short period of time they will be granted the access that they require, and that will help them make strides in their own mental health.

An issue as pressing as mental health is something that we should all be able to band around to help our fellow human being. Talkspace has made great strides in helping those who might not otherwise receive the help they deserve to get.

Highland Capital is a private equity firm that’s been managing institutional investments since 1993, and they also have community initiatives run through the Highland Foundation. They just appointed a new manager to this branch of their company, the former head of Dallas’s Woodall-Rogers Parks Foundation Linda Owen. Highland Capital Chairman and CEO James Dondero said he recommended Owen because of her work building relationships between the Dallas business community and government programs, and her commitment to philanthropy. Prior to serving at the park foundation, Owen had also been involved in real estate development and management. Read more at Biz Journals about Highland Capital.

Their main funding source comes through collateralized loan obligations, and their strategies range across the spectrum of healthcare, long-short equity, fixed income funds, distressed companies and high-yield credit.  Read this article at PR Newswire.

Highland Capital was founded by James Dondero and Mark Okada who both came to the company with experience in the credit departments of investment banks. Dondero had been with American Express for several years as a bond analyst, and Okada had served as Vice President of commercial banking at Hibernia National Bank. They had come to Protective Life to grow it’s GIC subsidiary into a strategic asset management company. Almost overnight it grew to having $2 billion in AUM, and in only 5 years this subsidiary actually outgrew its parent. Dondero and Okada renamed the company Highland Capital and today it has near $15 billion in AUM. Part of Highland’s charitable giving has gone to health organizations and educational buildings including the George W. Bush Library in downtown Dallas, and more recently the completion of a shelter facility for the Family Place, a domestic violence protection association.

Jorge Moll is a Brazilian Businessman who spends most of his fortune on revamping the modern healthcare. Moll recognizes the importance of embracing and leveraging technology with the aim of redefining the modern healthcare facilities. He is also the founder and owner of the biggest Hospital Group in Brazil. This article discusses some facts need to be known as far as the efforts made by Jorge Moll are concerned.

Jorge Moll’s Voluntary Work

Jorge Moll believes that people who take their time to donate and help people who are in needy both financially and medically had the same brain just like the ones who do pleasurable things like eating chocolate and shopping. Jorge Moll reported that by donating, one feels like they belong to the group that they are supported as the act provokes the feeling of attachment. The Subgenual Cortex and the Septal Area of the brain are the ones responsible for the biological attachment between the parents and their children. The same regions of the brain are triggered when we donate to the indigent in the society. Follow Jorge Moll on Facebook.

Innovative Visions of Entrepreneurship and Health Management

Jorge Moll and Paulo Chapchap are working together to ensure that enough financial resources are invested in healthcare so that there is the availability of resources to stabilize the health of Brazilian Community. Mr. Chapchap reported during his talk that one of the ways through which developed countries enhance healthcare is through the application of their GDP broadly to the healthcare. Chapchap and Jorge Moll made a joint statement that the biggest challenge faced by the healthcare is that there is more demand as compared to the supply of resources and even healthcare services. That is the core reason as to why there is the need for more investment in the healthcare sector.

Jorge Moll and his associates have maintained that the Brazilian Healthcare Sector must be provided with more technology for it to meet what is best described as the modern healthcare department. However, accomplishing that title would require more financial management and innovation skills before the nation can start enjoying the latest and most effective technological advancement in the contemporary healthcare.
