Preparing for the coming telepsychiatry tsunami
Dr. Jay Shore, a Midwesterner with national recognition and a commitment to the cutting edge of telehealth presented at UNMC Psychiatry Grand Rounds on Wednesday, February 9, 2011. He discussed the national vision for telehealth services and his belief that technology will affect healthcare like an impending tsunami.

BHECN has the statutory responsibility to focus on the training of behavioral health professionals in telehealth techniques, including taking advantage of a telehealth network that exists as well as other innovative means of care delivery in order to increase access to behavioral health services for all Nebraskans.

Please take the opportunity to watch Dr. Shore’s presentation and let BHECN know if you have interest in working with us to create innovative means of service to all Nebraskans.
