Telehealth use is expanding all over the country, connecting patients to services they need, but are not able to access in their community.
When providers think about adding telehealth services to their practice, they often have lots of questions:
- “Can I really form a therapeutic alliance with patients in a session conducted with telehealth?
- “Is it really as effective as face to face sessions?
- "Why would I want to go through the trouble of setting up telehealth?
- “Will this actually grow my practice?
- “What if the technology fails?”
In this interactive module learn about telehealth evolution and its current use and answer these questions. The module will also identify various indications of behavioral telehealth service delivery, describe telehealth etiquette and best practices, and demonstrate basic skills necessary to navigate the use of a telehealth platform.
