CarePaths is proud to announce a new service: telepsychiatry and teletherapy.
We have incorporated new developments in technology that enable dramatically enhanced video conferencing quality. Gestures, facial expressions, tones of voice, body language, and other visual and auditory subtleties so important in psychotherapy—are rendered with a crispness and immediacy that Skype, Facetime, Google Plus, etc do not come close to matching. It is as close to the gold standard–the patient in the same room with you—as technologically possible.
The features and benefits include:
Super easy to use—Just send the patient an email; she or he clicks on it and you’re there. No plug-ins, downloads or technical skills required.
Convenience–Care can be accessed anytime and anywhere: home, work, school
Fewer no shows—Patients don’t have problems getting to your office because your office is virtual
Flexibility—Because you don’t have to travel to an office, you can schedule patients at times convenient to you and your patients, including nights and weekends
Continuity of care—Patients move, return to college, travel for their job; teletherapy solves this problem
Privacy—It is Hipaa compliant, encrypted, and secure
Access—A range of patients who can not get to a providers office, e.g. agoraphobics, patients who fear stigma, the physically disabled, contagious with an infectious disease or immunocompromised, live rural location, etc. can receive care
Effectiveness—Studies show that teletherapy is as effective as in person therapy
Broader market reach—You can be available to patients in any state in which you are licensed to practice
