In order to implement telepsychiatry, you need only a solid internet connection (DSL, cable, T1 or higher) and a device capable of videoconferencing. While a laptop or PC with a good web camera and microphone are preferable, a tablet or even a smartphone can work in a pinch for teleconferencing.
Research shows that telepsychiatry is just as effective as in-person, face-to-face care. Many patients, in fact, find that psychiatric treatment via videoconferencing is less intimidating or embarrassing.
Patients can visit their local clinic, medical office, or hospital. Wherever you can set up a private space for video conferencing, patients can comfortably sit and engage with our mental health professionals.
Telepsychiatry allows your facility access to qualified, capable psychiatrists, including specialists in the field of incarceration, located anywhere around the country.
