Telepsychiatry is the application of telemedicine to the field of psychiatry. It is the delivery of psychiatric assessment and care using telecommunications technology, such as videoconferencing to provide health care from a distance. Telepsychiatry, a subset of telemedicine, means providing psychiatric evaluations, individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, patient education and medication management using telecommunications and direct interaction between a provider and a patient
Telepsychiatry can help meet your needs for convenient, affordable, easily-accessible mental health services. It can benefit you in many ways by:
Some patients feel more relaxed and willing to open up from the comfort of their home or another convenient locale. Many people today have become more familiar and comfortable with video communication in everyday life. Through telepsychiatry, mental health professionals can treat more patients in more distant locations. Many patients report enhanced feelings of safety, security and privacy thanks to telepsychiatry.
There is substantial evidence showing the effectiveness of telepsychiatry. Research has found high satisfaction among patients, psychiatrists and other providers. In terms of diagnostic accuracy, treatment effectiveness, quality of care and patient satisfaction, telepsychiatry is an excellent alternative to in-person care, including patient privacy and confidentiality. Thus far, overall experiences among all age groups have been good.
