About Telepsychiatry

(Known also as Telemedicine, Teletherapy, or Telehealth)
Telepsychiatry falls under the ambit of a video conference, which is the technological method of convening meetings though users are in different places. Telepsychiatry enables psychiatrists, therapists and other healthcare specialists to render their services to patients beyond the confines of an office space such as at a patient’s residence or place of employment.

Importantly also, it creates the convenience of conferring with other healthcare workers, family members, and teachers concerned with the patient’s wellness. Telepsychiatry users who participated in a survey expressed satisfaction with the treatment provided and viewed it as a dependable source of healthcare. They also expressed that the service enabled them to steadily honor their appointments.

A comparative study featured in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that telepsychiatry is a valuable option and that “videoconference-based treatment obtains the same results as face-to-face therapy.” Ultimately, there were no major distinctions with the productivity and pleasing of patients when an evaluation of in-office-treatment versus telepsychiatry was done.
