Psychoanalysis Just A Click Away With TeleMedTM Psychiatry™

TeleMedTM Psychiatry™ takes the guesswork, and the expense, out of telepsychiatry with fully secure, high quality online video therapy sessions.

COLD SPRING, N.Y., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleMedTM announces the launch of TeleMedTM Psychiatry, a first-of-its-kind telepsychiatry solution designed to give mental health providers and patients scheduled access to one another through secure online video therapy, regardless of location. TeleMedTM was developed by Aurora Information Technology, Inc., a widely-regarded medical website design and medical marketing company located in Cold Spring, NY, just north of New York City.

Fully supported by the American Psychiatric Association, telepsychiatry is a trusted channel for delivering psychiatric support including diagnosis, ongoing therapy, and prescription management. In remote regions of the world, telemedicine is highly successful in long-distance medical care and preventative services. TeleMedTM Psychiatry achieves seamless connectivity with Apple and PC-Microsoft operating systems. For doctors and patients on the go, the Google Chromebook by Samsung is a perfect, private portal for separating TeleMedTM Psychiatry from personal computer usage.

Domestically, online psychiatric care has tremendous potential in forensic psychology, Veteran and military counseling, inmate therapy, drug and alcohol counseling, and for those who are homebound or in assisted living care. But until recently there was no way for providers to ensure full HIPAA-compliant security measures while conducting online talk therapy with mainstream patients.

Doctors love it, patients need it.

Daniel Gilbert, CEO and President of TeleMedTM eases entry to this in-demand medical service. "For years our clients have been eager to embrace online video sessions for medicine and psychiatry, but the cost of entry has been prohibitive and the security unreliable. We're giving doctors a custom, easy, and affordable tool that securely connects them to patients with the click of a button."

The benefits of TeleMedTM Psychiatry are numerous. The guesswork is gone, as are the expensive proprietary hardware and time consuming setup procedures historically required for a practice to get this kind of service off the ground. TeleMedTM Psychiatry provides an all-inclusive option for practices of all sizes, ensuring the utmost professional and private care.

"Patients can't wait for their psychiatrists to offer online therapy," stresses Gilbert. "TeleMedTM Psychiatry cuts the hassle for them, too – no driving, no waiting rooms; it's all in the privacy and convenience of their home or closed-door office. Best of all, it's simple and intuitive. All it takes to get started is a webcam and broadband Internet access."

Video sessions eliminate all barriers to consistent, quality mental healthcare and they give patients access to top medical professionals regardless of where they live. "The idea that patients can simply log in, pick an appointment time, pay, and chat is very appealing to them," adds Gilbert. "Especially for those in rural or remote areas where immediate access to quality care may be lacking."

Doctors: Meet TeleMedTM Psychiatry

With your current webcam and broadband Internet connection, TeleMedTM Psychiatry will have your online psychiatry practice up and running with confirmed patient appointments.

TeleMedTM Psychiatry has unmatched affordability with plans starting at just $179.95/month, including:

  • Face-to-face video sessions for instant provider-patient connectivity from anywhere
  • One-click secure session recording, fully encrypted treatment notes, and exportable patient data
  • Provider-controlled online "office" hours for self-scheduling by patients
  • Free customized website to promote your new online video sessions
  • Secure dashboard for behind-the-scenes appointment management and reminders
  • Automatic patient credit card billing and direct deposit to your account

TeleMedTM Psychiatry is easy to set up and the demand is so great that return on investment is practically immediate. "Patient referrals and more profitable encounters with existing patients are just the beginning," stated Gilbert, "With TeleMedTM Psychiatry, providers can grow their practice without adding overhead. In fact, our clients are looking forward to decreasing overhead – and stress – by trading office time for online time in the comfort of their homes."

Americans depend on the web for almost all daily activities – working, banking, shopping, and socializing. We're entering a time when doing things offline is a costly waste of time or, at the very least, a nuisance. But that doesn't mean consumers or patients are willing to sacrifice quality. "That's where TeleMedTM Psychiatry shines," Gilbert said. "We have the solution for putting top psychiatrists in contact with patients who demand, and pay for, the best care."

TeleMedTM will soon launch online practice platforms tailored to other medical specialties, and will also make their products available in other countries and languages.
