Independa and Coro Health to deliver Spiritual Support Programs on LG TVs

Independa, an award-winning TV-based platform providing simplified remote engagement, education and care, and Coro Health LLC, the leading provider of therapeutic music and spiritual support in the healthcare industry, today announced a global strategic partnership to bring FaithFirst to the Independa Health Hub — an integrated ecosystem of healthy offerings — on 2021 and 2022 LG Electronics televisions.

The Independa Health Hub provides consumers with bi-directional, easy to use video chat that allows users to connect with family and friends as well as healthcare providers, all in the comfort of their homes through their LG televisions. In addition to its communication capabilities, the Independa Health Hub also provides valuable wellness services and entertainment programming.

“Clinical research continues to show the benefits of spiritual support and we are proud and excited to be partnering with Coro Health to bring FaithFirst to millions of homes, empowering our customers to stay socially and clinically engaged, all from their familiar TV screen and the comfort of their home,” said Kian Saneii, founder and CEO of Independa.

FaithFirst is an inter-faith digital therapeutic streaming service providing individualized spiritual support continuity for people in various healthcare settings such as hospitals, long-term care, treatment centers and aging-in place communities. FaithFirst draws from a broad spectrum of faith and wisdom traditions (Catholic, Christian, Buddhist, General Spirituality, Jewish, Native American & Islamic) to offer prayers, hymns, bible studies, meditations, sacred texts, education, interactive spiritual exercises and more.

“I've known Coro Health for the past decade — they are unique as research-based leaders providing high quality content (both music and spiritual) for older adults, whether in facilities or at home,” said Laurie Orlov, Principal Analyst at Aging and Health Technology Watch.

“This is a giant leap forward for the vision of FaithFirst,” said David Schofman, Co-Founder of Coro Health. “For the last decade we have focused on providing spiritual support to millions of individuals within healthcare communities. With this partnership, we can now reach millions more who may have been displaced from their spiritual community or are choosing to age in place.”
