During the COVID public emergency, clinics billing for telehealth no longer need to be in a HPSA (Health Provider Shortage Area).
What tech does my organization need?
Setting up telepsychiatry at your organization is simple. The set up will require:
- A two-way video telecommunication system that allows for real-time communication between the provider and patient
- HIPAA-compliant video conferencing technology

Utilization is the percentage of a telepsychiatrist’s time that is spent on reimbursable patient care. Tracking this number helps organizations understand the financial sustainability of their telepsychiatry program.
