Telepsychiatry

Telepsychiatry is the delivery of psychiatric care remotely between the psychiatrist and the patient using technology (computer, cellphone, tablet). Telepsychiatry has become an accepted practice in the medical field and allows increased access and flexibility to demanding schedules. Telemedicine, when properly deployed, is HIPAA compliant and encrypted to protect sensitive information. After the initial psychiatric intake/evaluation, there will be the option of continuing treatment through telemedicine.
