Serving seniors across the US for more than twelve years.
“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.
We 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.”
– Phil Knudsen, President & Co-founder
