Frequently Asked Questions

 

Third- party?

There isn’t one! Umemba Health eliminates the middleman.

Most health education companies partner with pharmaceutical companies, insurance payers, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and self-insured employers.  However, offering employer-based services prevents certain members of the population from accessing much-needed care and education. We eliminate the middleman and use less overhead enabling us to deliver personalized education and coaching services virtually.  Our programs cost less than the cost of a visit to your doctor.

 

Modes of learning?

Through our hybrid learning programs we use two primary methods for education and training,  synchronous or “live” education sessions and on-demand, pre-recorded educational videos which allow learners to learn at their own pace.  Our virtual programming provides easy access with no time or location restriction, allowing clients to learn from the comfort of their own home. 

What is a Virtual Care Visit?

Virtual care visits are 1:1 coaching and counseling sessions that occur in the Umemba Health Virtual Clinic. You can find more info on our Virtual Care page.
 

Technology?

We utilize Namastream software to deliver online education and training.  Namastream is an online teaching platform with enough bandwidth to support an unlimited number of courses and clients.  Namastream capabilities support 1:1 private sessions, collaborative group sessions (up to 25 participants at one time), and live broadcasting to an unlimited number of participants.  As long as there is there is an internet connection, clients can access 24/7/365.  Our virtual visits are provided through the HIPAA-compliant telehealth software VSEE.

HIPAA-compliant?

Absolutely! Umemba Health has processes and procedures in place to keep all client information confidential and secure.  We have Business Associate Agreements (BAA) with service providers that require full HIPAA compliance.  The Business Associate Agreements are made to HIPAA standards by the HITECH Act (otherwise known as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act).
