What is Telepsychiatry?

Telemedicine, or telepsychiatry, is the process of providing health care at a distance using a HIPAA secure videoconferencing platform.

Benefits:

Video-based telepsychiatry provides a convenient way for patients’ access to mental health care. Some benefits include:

  • – Improved access to mental health care (particularly for patients in rural areas)
  • – Bring care to the patient’s location
  • – Reduce the need for trips to the emergency room
  • – Reduce delays in care
  • – Improved care and follow-up
  • – Reduce the need for time off work, childcare services, etc. to access appointments far away
  • – Reduce potential transportation barriers, such as lack of transportation or the need for long drives
  • – Reduce the barrier of stigma of mental health care
