In 2008, Laskoff launched AbleTo, the market-leading provider of virtual behavioral health care, which works closely with numerous regional and national health plans, including Optum. Laskoff said he decided to join the wayForward board “because of the unique way that wayForward integrates clinical rigor and cutting-edge technology.” According to Laskoff, “This combination is especially significant in the era of COVID-19, as it ensures that employers can offer meaningful assistance to the burgeoning number of employees and their family members looking for behavioral healthcare.”
“We are so honored to have Michael to advise us as we confront new industry trends,” said wayForward Founder and Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Navya Singh. “Michael is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the behavioral health field, founding a company that is considered a pioneer in its space. He is the perfect addition to our growing roster of talent that is working together to solidify our leadership in on-demand mental health services.”
