The Independa Health Hub telehealth platform will be available on all 2021 and 2022 LG televisions in North America.

Independa, a TV-based platform providing remote engagement, education, and care, announced a partnership that will offer the Independa Health Hub on all 2021 and 2022 LG smart televisions in the U.S. and Canada.

The Independa Health Hub provides consumers with video communication to connect with healthcare providers, wellness services, family, and friends through their LG televisions.

“LG is proud to expand on our existing partnership with Independa to create innovative solutions designed to enhance the lives and wellbeing of LG smart TV owners,” said Matthew Durgin, Head of LG’s North American Innovation Team. “LG Electronics is the first to offer these integrated solutions that bring simplicity to in-home care and help to enhance and empower the lifestyles of our customers.”

As the first telehealthcare service supported on LG TVs, Independa features an intuitive interface to initiate a video chat with a caregiver or easily access a menu of relevant professional services. 

Pop-up notifications indicate when someone is calling, and personal alerts can be set up for more reminders. All notifications and alerts are integrated into the webOS software featured on LG TVs. 

Professional services available on Independa include Dentulu online dental consultation, Capital Rx discount pharmacy platform, Coverdell dental insurance benefits, WebMD medical-grade educational videos, and Sprio100 fitness programs for seniors.
