A complete suite of coaching, counseling, and psychiatric services including medication management are conveniently available to you at the location that suits you best.
Your sessions are secure, HIPAA compliant, and encrypted end-to-end. None of your information is identifiable or stored.
The American Psychiatric Association Policy Statements on the Practice of Telepsychiatry:
Telepsychiatry has a robust evidence base and leads to high patient and provider satisfaction ratings. It is equivalent to in-person care in diagnostic accuracy, treatment effectiveness, and patient satisfaction; it often saves time, money and other resources.
Patient privacy and confidentiality issues parallel in-person care.
Satisfaction rating: outstanding. It is extremely high among patients, psychiatrists and other professionals. This extends to all clinical services, populations, and contexts.
The use of video-based telepsychiatry is increasing in response to consumer demand for convenient, inexpensive, and readily-accessible services. Technology is no longer a major barrier.
Telemedicine in psychiatry, using video conferencing, is a validated and effective practice of medicine that increases access to care. The American Psychiatric Association supports the use of telemedicine as a legitimate component of a mental health delivery system to the extent that its use is for the benefit of the patient, protects patient autonomy, confidentiality, and privacy; and when used consistent with APA policies on medical ethics and applicable governing law.
