Feasibility and Effectiveness

  • Feasibility and Effectiveness in Telepsychiatry
  • Peter Yellowlees, M.D.
  • The use of video-based telepsychiatry is increasing in response to consumer demand for convenient, inexpensive, and readily-accessible services. Technology is no longer a major barrier.
  • Telepsychiatry has a robust evidence base and leads to high patient and provider satisfaction ratings, and outcomes equivalent to in-person care.
  • Telepsychiatry is especially effective with respect to the treatment of PTSD, depression, and ADHD, in team based environments, and with some patient groups may be more effective than in-person care.
