DUBLIN, Ohio — Cardinal Health last week announced the addition of Pamela O. Kimmet as the company’s new chief human resources officer, effective June 30. Kimmet, who joins the company from Coca-Cola Enterprises, will report to Cardinal Health chairman and CEO George S. Barrett and takes over for the retiring Carole Watkins.
“Pam will join an outstanding team of human resource professionals who have been led by Carole Watkins, who is retiring following a 30-year career in Human Resources, including 20 years with Cardinal Health,” Barrett said. “Carole has been a trusted partner to me and our team, and we wish her great joy as she begins her retirement.”

MYidealDOCTOR intros behavioral health sessions
ATLANTA — Telemedicine and mHealth company MYidealDOCTOR on Friday announced that it had launched on-demand access to behavioral health providers for video counseling sessions. Members can now access behavioral health providers for such conditions as anxiety, depression and stress, among others.
“The addition of the behavioral health component gives us the opportunity to provide quality care to individuals who may not have the time or resources to visit a physical provider practice,” MYidealDOCTOR CEO and founder Adrian Davis said “Our members now have the convenience of scheduling a therapy session using their phone, computer or smart device in the privacy of their own homes or wherever they may be.”
The company’s new behavioral health solution also includes a real-time assessment and scoring tools for patients and providers and access to them using the app on a smartphone or tablet, via telephone or on myidealdoctor.com.
“Our employer, third party administrators and health plan clients are all excited to introduce this cutting edge technology to their members and offer a much-needed access point for behavioral health,” Davis said.
