Telepsychiatry can be much more economically feasible for many individuals who are unable to afford mental health care. Telepsychiatry also brings mental health care to regions that are currently under-served, such as rural areas.
Telepsychiatry allows your facility access to qualified, capable psychiatrists, including specialists in the field of incarceration, located anywhere around the country.
At Orbit Health, we are determined to disrupt the cycle of mass incarceration of the mentally ill by inserting telepsychiatry at every stage of the criminal justice system.
Orbit Health brings qualified expert witnesses directly to your conference room and courthouse.
Forensic psychiatrists are often hired by lawyers and judges to act as expert witnesses for both criminal and civil cases. They conduct psychiatric evaluations and offer opinions about how mental health issues relate to the case.
In many cases, forensic evaluations and testimony can be accomplished remotely via videoconferencing. Forensic telepsychiatry makes sense, and it saves time and money.
