Mentor Capital Telemedicine Investee Expands
SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mentor Capital, Inc. (OTC Markets: MNTR) announced that its portfolio company, Brighter Day Health, LLC, is aggressively expanding its telemedicine operations. Brighter Day provides direct doctor interaction through secure computer video set-ups for ultra-economic health care delivery. Mentor Capital provides growth funding for Brighter Day Health to continue its multi-state expansion plan.
Edward Mashek, the CEO of Brighter Day Health, ascribes several contributing factors to his company's organic growth. "Telemedicine is the fastest growing method of delivering face-to-face healthcare to patients in the United States and Brighter Day Health has been an early leader in this field." In addition to geographic and personnel expansion, Brighter Day looks to more than double its services provided and broaden its client organization types.
Mentor Capital CEO, Chester Billingsley, explains, "We are pleased to hear that Brighter Day Health is adding to its base in nursing homes to also provide economical treatments under contract to other health care providers or government run organizations. Originally, a typical nursing home cancer patient could easily be provided with weekly depression or pain medicine review by a company contracted psychiatrist. The simple but strategic addition of a psychologist to provide life counseling not only improves patient quality of life, but also reduces drug costs to the health care organization. Once we have the Brighter Day platform in place the ease and speed to actually 'see the doctor' makes expansion almost inevitable."
About Mentor Capital: By acquisition or stock purchase, Mentor Capital, Inc. seeks to invest in leading companies that reduce the cost of medical treatments especially in the fight against cancer. Additional important information is presented at: www.MentorCapital.com
