What Is Telepsychiatry?
Telepsychiatry is a subcategory of telemedicine, which is a type of health care that is offered through the use of technological devices and programs. With telepsychiatry, Dr. Patel is able to provide professional evaluations and recommendations using many types of video software, including video conferencing via smartphone.
Many patients wonder how telepsychiatry will differ from traditional therapy sessions with a mental health specialist. While some may be worried that they will not enjoy a consultation over video, there are multiple benefits to consider, including:
Added comfort: Complete video calls wherever you feel most relaxed and at ease, even if that means staying at home in your pajamas.
Avoid delays and added expenses: There is no need to worry about getting stuck in traffic when on your way to a therapy appointment, and your need for long drives and expensive stops at the gas station will no longer be required.
Improved accessibility: Individuals living in more rural areas will have all the same opportunities as those residing in a densely populated city, including having access to some of the best mental health care professionals available.
Flexibility: Many patients can become frustrated when they have to take time off work or away from their family to speak with a psychiatrist. Telepsychiatry allows individuals the ability to minimize this period of time as much as humanly possible.
