About Us

Equiping Telehealth providers and Online educators

Fifteen years ago, using your personal computer for a video chat half a world away was amazing. Phones and fax machines had been used in health care and education decades previous, but real-time video elevated the possibilities. Today, we are on the brink of a new frontier of serving people Online. We must look beyond video alone. Our tele-software must integrate tools that help providers and educators achieve the same goals Online that they do in person.

The challenges is: the tools of each medical and education specialty are different. Where a cardiologist depends on an EKG, a speech pathologist might rely on flashcards. And when it comes to top-notch care, the right tool isn't an option, it's essential.

Blink Session began in 2016 with a question: How do you do therapy Online? As I observed my wife, a speech pathologist, grapple with how to translate in-person therapy to a computer screen and webcam, I thought: there has to be a better way. Something better than using software designed for business meetings to help people with their speech Online.

Blink Session's mission is to equip telehealth providers and online educators with tools and support which enable them to provide life-changing help.

We believe in providing cutting-edge user-friendly software, but we don't stop there. Does your company need specialized support or training? We can help. We are a tech company focused on more than tech. We are focused on helping your organization stand out with amazing Online services that change the lives of your customers. Contact us to see how we can help.
