Telepsychiatry offers the ability to increase access to care for patients with SMI though remote, video, and virtual visits. Today it is increasingly easy to offer your patients telepsychiatry services, and this webinar will offer an introduction focusing on use cases for SMI. Topics covered will include the history and background of telepsychiatry, trainings available today, legal and reimbursement issues, technical considerations, as well as practice and clinical issues. Relevant research at the intersection of SMI and telepsychiatry will also be discussed as relevant to each of the topics.
Presenter: John Torous, MD, MBI, Harvard Medical School
