Are There Benefits To Virtual Visits?

Video-based telepsychiatry can help meet a patient’s need for convenient, affordable and easily accessible mental health services. Telepsychiatry can benefit patients in a number of ways:

Bring mental health care to the patient’s location

Improve access and availability of mental health care that might not otherwise be available

Reduce delays in treatment or care.

Lowers the need for emergency room visits

Helps to integrate behavioral health care and primary care which leads to better patient outcomes.

Reduces the time needed off work

Reduces transportation time and costs and the barrier of stigma

Allows patient and providers to still meet face-to-face
