What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the exchange of medical information from one site to another via electronic communications. The telemedicine service offered to you will allow you to have a counseling or psychiatric medication management appointment with a specialist via secure and interactive video equipment. You will be able to speak in real-time with the provider during your telemedicine appointment. Telemedicine is NOT available for psychological or neuropsychological testing due to the nature of these services.
Is Telemedicine Safe?
Yes, all telemedicine sessions are safe, secure, encrypted, and follow the same privacy (i.e., HIPAA) guidelines as traditional, in-person appointments. Your telemedicine appointments will always be kept confidential. In addition, telemedicine appointments are NEVER audio or video recorded. A transcription of the session may be attached to your medical record.
