What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a form of video conferencing allowing our therapists to provide services to patients outside of the office, for example at the patient’s home or workplace. It also provides the opportunity for consultation with family members and other providers involved in the patient’s care.
Our community’s health is of the utmost importance to our team.
Surveyed patients participating in telemedicine say they are very satisfied with the care they are receiving and that they feel telemedicine is a reliable form of practice. In addition, they find that they are able to keep their appointments on a more regular basis.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry comparing in-office-treatment to treatment via telepsychiatry indicated “There were no statistically significant differences between study groups for symptoms, quality of life, and patient satisfaction… there is a strong hypothesis that videoconference-based treatment obtains the same results as face-to-face therapy and that telepsychiatry is a useful alternative.”
Telehealth Services Are…
We use secure technology to keep your personal health information private. All telehealth appointments are subject to the same strict HIPAA standards as in-person sessions.
Research shows that telehealth services are as effective as in-person appointments when it comes to treating mental illness. Some people find that telehealth is more helpful because they are able to attend appointments regularly.
Most insurance policies that cover mental and behavioral health services provide coverage for telehealth appointments as well. Our clinicians work with most major insurance providers to ensure you can access the care you need.
