What is Telepsychiatry?
Telepsychiatry is the use of telecommunications technology to provide real-time health care to patients at a distance using video-conferencing using mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers.
Telepsychiatry can be provided to a patient at home or work. With mobile devices, you the patient can be anywhere with access to the Doctor.
Is Telepsychiatry secure?
At AZITTS, we use HIPAA-compliant and secure software.
Can I do an initial evaluation with Telepsychiatry?
No, the initial evaluation must be done at the clinic. It will be at that visit where the practitioner and the patient will discuss if telepsychiatry is appropriate. You must visit the clinic at a minimum of 1x per year, to continue to qualify for telepsychiatry services.
