Telemedicine: The Basics

The Benefits of Telemedicine

When it comes to serving more patients without increasing overhead and without impacting care quality, telepsychiatry offers customizable solutions.

What is telemedicine?

Telemedicine is the remote delivery of medical services and clinical information using telecommunications technology. This includes a wide array of clinical services using internet, wireless, satellite and telephone media.

Why telemedicine?

With millions of new patients in the healthcare system, aging-related health challenges and the growth of chronic diseases, patient demand is outstripping physician supply. By 2020, the Association of American Medical Colleges estimates we will have significant shortages in primary care physicians, surgeons and specialists.

Telemedicine can help healthcare facilities serve more patients, more efficiently, without sacrificing quality or driving up costs.

Telepsychiatry Services

Healthcare facilities, especially those in remote, rural locations, can have a difficult time recruiting and maintaining adequate psychiatric coverage.

Telepsychiatry - the practice of psychiatry using a live, secure, video conference connection - has proven to be a valuable service to emergency departments, mental health facilities and nursing homes.

Telepsychiatry allows psychiatrists to be physically located anywhere in the U.S., provided they have the appropriate experience and licensure.
