The mission of Eye Link Technologies (ELT) is to improve access to care by providing tele-psychiatry in a variety of settings with the overall goals of promoting early intervention, recovery, and prevention of patients having to access higher levels of care. We are passionate about helping our patients to lead healthy and meaningful lives while also reducing overall healthcare costs.

Our company is currently filling a portion of those needs by providing telepsychiatry services in Arizona and Texas—both of whom rank extremely low in the country for overall lack of mental health care (Mental Health America, 2017).

Statistics show that in Arizona there is on average only one mental health professional for every 850 people.  The ratio is even lower in Texas at 1 provider to every 1070 people.

41%
The result is that only 41% of those with mental illness report receiving care.
60%
Combined with the fact that almost 60% of psychiatrists are aged 55 or older.

Psychiatry is now the 4th oldest medical profession of the 44 specialties in terms of practitioner age which creates disparities in care that can no longer be ignored.
