Our History

“Forefront is a pioneer and U.S. leader in the delivery of behavioral health services via our unique HIPAA-compliant Telehealth platform, which incorporates software, hardware and comprehensive service protocols that we developed over years in the field.

Merritt Widen and I co-founded the company and developed this service with our mothers in mind. My mom had Alzheimer’s and lived far away from me. I wanted to stay involved in her life, but the distance meant that daily care monitoring fell to my brother. We started out just offering a video-based visiting service for family members, and it quickly morphed into the Telehealth venture that it is today when the skilled nursing facility (SNF) industry approached us hoping we could help with its rural psychiatry shortage.

Now our national provider network of psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and other behavioral health professionals work with Forefront to serve the behavioral health needs of our clients and patients.

Through flexible scheduling technology, logistics and management systems combined with our deep behavioral health experience, Forefront is able to create solutions that effectively integrate with existing client systems and workflows.”
