Individual Models of Care
After determining the appropriateness of the patient for the use of telepsychiatry as a treatment modality, individual practitioners have a range of options to provide care.
- Direct, individual, synchronous videoconferencing for the patient visit, on a self-pay basis or by accepting 3rd party insurance, where possible. The physician and patient may be at their home or respective place of business where a secure, solo connection is established.
- Individual, one-on-one sessions set in out-patient clinics, for incarcerated patients, by evaluating children while at school, or even by partnering with companies that offer 24/7 availability using mobile apps.
