Telepsychiatry Q&A

What is telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry allows you to have audio or video psychiatry appointments from practically anywhere in the world. By using your phone or computer, telepsychiatry allows you access to all sorts of psychiatry and psychology services, such as:

  • Psychiatric evaluations 
  • Therapy, including talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, etc.
  • Treatment plan creation
  • Prescription medication
  • Medication management
  • Client education
  • Follow-up visits

Iasis Solutions offers both video and audio-based telepsychiatry during which Virginia can not only evaluate you, but diagnose and effectively treat conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, schizophrenia, disordered eating, and substance misuse. 

Providers like Virginia can also use telepsychiatry to diagnose disorders like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in teens and adults.

What are the benefits of telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry offers many advantages, such as:

  • Improved access to care for older adults, individuals with mobility issues, the immunocompromised, and those with barriers to transportation
  • Increased access to quality care for rural residents
  • Improved care and follow-up
  • Reduced anxiety and discomfort and increased feelings of privacy, security, and safety
  • Reduced need to find child care, take off time from work, etc., to access appointments
  • Fewer delays in care
  • Increased cost-effectiveness

Telepsychiatry is also an excellent alternative for those who are reluctant to talk to a mental health provider in person, whether due to social anxiety, embarrassment, or fear. All sessions are private and secure, just like an in-person visit. 

Many people feel more comfortable opening up about their mental health from the comfort of their home. Telepsychiatry ensures that you get the care you need without stigma, barriers, or added stress.

Does telepsychiatry work?

Studies have shown that telepsychiatry is just as effective as in-person psychiatry in terms of:

  • Diagnosis accuracy
  • Treatment effectiveness
  • Quality of care
  • Privacy

Telepsychiatry is convenient, practical, and effective. If you’re struggling with your mental or behavioral health and would prefer virtual visits for whatever reason, telepsychiatry may be the perfect solution.
