What does telepsychiatry do?

In telemedicine, health care is provided from a distance through technology, usually through videoconferencing. Psychological evaluations, therapy (individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy), education, and medication management can all be provided by telepsychiatry, a subset of telemedicine.

A psychiatrist and a patient can interact directly through telepsychiatry. Also included are psychiatrists who provide mental health consultations and expertise to primary care providers. Live, interactive communication can be used to deliver mental health care. Medical information can also be recorded (images, videos, etc.) and made available to patients and healthcare providers.

How effective is telepsychiatry?

Even though some people may be reluctant or feel awkward talking to someone on a screen, experience shows that most people are comfortable with it. From the comfort of their homes or convenient local facilities, some people may feel more relaxed and willing to open up. People will likely become more comfortable with video communication as they become more familiar with it.

Psychiatrists can treat more patients at distant locations through telepsychiatry. Clinicians and psychiatrists must be licensed in the state(s) where they are working with patients.

Even though patients and psychiatrists are not in the same room, telepsychiatry can enhance patients’ feelings of safety, security, and privacy.

Researchers have found that patients, psychiatrists, and other professionals are satisfied with the effectiveness of telepsychiatry. In terms of diagnostic accuracy, treatment effectiveness, quality of care, and patient satisfaction, telepsychiatry is equivalent to in-person care. There is no difference between online and in-person care in terms of patient privacy and confidentiality.

Additionally, research shows that overall experiences among all age groups have been positive. There is evidence regarding assessment and treatment (medication and therapy) for children, adolescents, and adults. Remote treatment may even be preferable for some patients, such as those with autism or severe anxiety disorders and those with physical limitations.

It has been found that telepsychiatry is especially effective for treating PTSD, depression, and ADHD.

What is a telepsychiatry assessment?

The process of telepsychiatry is similar to that of traditional in-person treatment.

To receive treatment, a person should contact a local health clinic or a doctor. An appointment with a psychiatrist will then be scheduled for them. Clinics, doctors, or clients can contact the psychiatrist who provides telepsychiatry services to schedule an initial appointment. Clients can log onto the appropriate video conferencing platform once they have an appointment time and await the psychiatrist’s arrival. A telephone call may also be arranged.

Records and information about prescriptions, including records of previous visits, should be readily available to the client. In addition, they should make a list of any questions or concerns they may have.

A telepsychiatry appointment typically follows the same guidelines as an in-person appointment, and both follow the same format. Psychiatrists and clients will discuss relevant issues and goals during the telepsychiatry assessment.

Can I get anxiety medication through telemedicine?

The symptoms of the anxiety disorder you’re experiencing will need to be discussed with your doctor. A psychological evaluation will also be required before an anxiety disorder diagnosis can be given.

In addition to treating your anxiety disorder, your doctor may also refer you to a mental health professional for additional evaluations. Mental health physicians you meet with in telemedicine are general practitioners trained to diagnose and treat mental health conditions and can prescribe medications if necessary. Your physician can prescribe anxiety medication online as necessary and make it available for you to pick up at a nearby pharmacy.

Telemedicine can be a highly convenient option to receive mental health care, especially for individuals who are too busy to visit a clinic and are more comfortable opening up about their mental health concerns from the comfort of their own homes.
