Telepsychiatry Q&A

What is telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry is a type of psychiatric care that utilizes technological communications. Instead of going to the office of Alliance Behavioral Psychiatry for all of your needs, including follow-up visits, you can simply access your appointment through an online portal. You communicate with your provider using high-quality video and audio conferencing. 

Many people find telepsychiatry to be remarkably convenient since you don’t have to leave the house, or you can tune in from far away if you’re on vacation or a business trip. Your Alliance Behavioral Psychiatry providers can conduct some of your visits this way if it’s more convenient for you, and they will let you know if you ever need to come in person.

Although in-person visits are preferred, telepsychiatry is there when you need it. You may wish to avoid an office visit if you’re sick or busy with other responsibilities. Please check with your insurance provider to make sure telehealth visits are covered on an ongoing basis.  

What are the benefits of telepsychiatry?

Having the option for telepsychiatry in your personalized psychiatric care plan can be a major advantage. Even if you only use the service every so often, there are considerable benefits to conducting a visit remotely. 

The benefits of telepsychiatry include:

  • Saving time on transportation
  • Saving money on transportation
  • Fewer missed appointments or delays in care
  • Less time away from work or caretaking

While in-person visits also have their benefits, telepsychiatry offers a confidential and convenient alternative when coming to the office isn’t feasible. 

What do telepsychiatry visits involve?
