Rural Medicaid Clinics use telepsychiatry to improve access PDF Print E-mail

Hospitals and Community Based Mental Health Organizations use Secure Telehealth to connect their clients to Physicians who may be hundreds of miles away.


Telepsychiatry improves outcomes for rural populations who might not otherwise be able to receive treatment.

Telepsychiatry reduces "no-show"  rates by allowing remote patients to see the Doctor sooner (regardless of where the Doctor is).

Telepsychiatry improves the prospects of CBMHO's successfully recruiting Physicians to work with rural populations.

Leverage:  Clinics may share their Secure Telehealth meeting rooms with multiple part-time physicians.
