Not Just Phoning It In: The Myths and Facts about Telepsychiatry

A National Council for Behavioral Health Webinar

Alyssa Thomas 0 850

Telepsychiatry has the potential to expand access to quality psychiatric care to millions of people who can’t access it due to location, physician shortage or a number of other barriers. But misconceptions about telepsychiatry like, “Telehealth technology is too complex,” or, “Doctor visits need to happen in person” often prevent organizations from taking advantage of all the benefits telepsychiatry has to offer.

Join us on Monday, September 26 for a webinar where experts from the field will:

  • Uncover some common myths about telepsychiatry.
  • Show how organizations are using telepsychiatry to address a number of problems.
  • Cover the policies, laws and regulations in place surrounding telemedicine—and which ones are needed to make it more accessible.

Organizations specifically in rural areas or those who have experienced long wait-times for psychiatric services will particularly benefit from this webinar, though telepsychiatry can be used to solve a variety of issues any clinic may face.

Speakers: Jon Evans, President and CEO, InnovaTel Telepsychiatry, LLC | Kate Davidson, Clinical Advisor, Policy and Practice Improvement, National Council for Behavioral Health | Dr. Richard Lee, Executive Director, Central Minnesota Mental Health Cente
