Telehealth is a fairly recent innovation that allows the mental health counselors to provide services to clients via live video conferencing or on the phone. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone has a smart phone, tablet, or computer capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing counselors to interact with clients from their homes.
Using your smart phone, tablet, or computer, you can consult with a mental health professional to receive ongoing care to have a remote counseling appointment.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is not an option right now or is too difficult to get to. Telehealth can help you by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment. There’s no need to get ready or even leave your couch for a telehealth appointment.
I use the telehealth HIPAA compliant platform through Simple Practice. For more information, click on this link Simple Practice Client Portal Telehealth to be directed to an information sheet that should answer of all of your questions.
