Innovating with Telepsychiatry to Improve Mental Health Care in Health Centers (Webinar)


Publication Date: December 9, 2020


Description

Description:

With both the vast unmet need for mental health services and a shortage of psychiatrists in rural underserved areas, telepsychiatry has gained increasing interest among health centers. This webinar will present research results comparing two different approaches to providing telepyschiatry to rural health center patients with complex psychiatric disorders. Presenters will discuss clinical outcomes for both groups of patients and implementation-related issues such as credentialing and privileging telepsychiatrists/telepsychologists, EHR access for telepsychiatrists/telepsychologists, expanding scope of practice, billing, no-shows, contracting, and indemnity.
