Telepsychiatry

What is telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry is a technique that employs telecommunications equipment to deliver psychiatric services to persons who live far away from a psychiatrist or who prefer to be at home. 

Telepsychiatry is a telemedicine subspecialty. Telemedicine is a type of healthcare delivery that uses video-based technology to provide a variety of services to patients. Psychiatrists can communicate with patients directly over the phone or via video conferencing using telepsychiatry. Some people choose to have their medical information recorded. 

For many people, telepsychiatry can be a viable substitute for traditional person-to-person psychiatric services. Telemedicine, according to a research source, is a cost-effective and successful way to improve client access to doctors. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), there is considerable evidence that telepsychiatry can result in better outcomes and higher client satisfaction.

What conditions can benefit from telepsychiatry?

Here is a list of psychiatric illness that can be treated via telepsychiatry

  • Depression
  • Eating disorder
  • Substance abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Schizophrenia 
  • Insomnia
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Autism
  • Bipolar disorder 
  • PTSD

Does it matter where I live if I want to use telepsychiatry?

Yes, it does, one can only get telepsychiatry if you reside in the state where the provider is licensed.

What happens during a telepsychiatry appointment?

The majority of telepsychiatry consultations take place at a local behavioral health center close to the patient’s home. Patients may be able to join remotely from the comfort of their own homes in some circumstances. From their workplace, doctors can communicate with their patients virtually. On both ends, video teleconferencing equipment like a desktop, tablet, or laptop will be present.

Your telepsychiatry appointment is just like a conventional doctor’s appointment. The only difference is that you’ll be able to view and communicate with your doctor via video conference! If you’ve ever used Skype or FaceTime, you’ll recognize how telehealth operates. Simply speak as though you were having a face-to-face conversation.
