It is worthy of note, however, that: — This study focused on clinic—based, high—speed videoconferencing and did not include any home telehealth encounters. Mental health patients were referred for telecare by clinicians. Typically, telemental health services were provided remotely at community—based outpatient clinics by mental health providers of all disciplines located at larger parent VA hospital facilities.

OGY Introduction These guidelines are designed to address the developing area of psychological service provision commonly known as telepsychology. Telepsychology is defined for the purpose of these as the provision of psychological services using telecommunication technologies as expounded in the “Definition of Telepsychology. " The expanding role of technology in the provision of psychological services and the continuous development of new technologies that may be useful in the practice of psychology present unique opportunities. considerations and challenges to practice. With the advancement of technology and the increased number of psychologists using technology in their practices. these guidelines have been prepared to educate and guide them u-0-0 I-'©‘O®lO. h&aIl~J 3-‘ —- I9 These guidelines are informed by relevant American Psychological Association (APA) standards and including the following: Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (“APA Ethics Code“) (APA. 20023. 2010). and the Record Keeping Guidelines (APA. 2007). In addition. thc assumptions and principles that guide the APA's “Guidelines on Multicultural Training. Research Practice. and Organizational Change for Psychologists" (APA -Io—-n--o-u—-—nn- ©%JO.

  • 41. Guidelines for the Practice of Telepsychology These guidelines are designed to address the developing area of psychological service provision commonly known as telepsychology. Telepsychology is defined, for the purpose of these guidelines, as the provision of psychological services using telecommunication technologies as expounded in the ”Definition of Telepsychology. ”p1
  • 42. Guidelines for the Practice of Telepsychology Telecommunication technologies include but are not limited to telephone, mobile devices, interactive videoconferencing, email, chat, text, and Internet (e. g., self-help websites, blogs, and social media). p.3
  • 43. Development of the Guidelines Therefore, two of the most salient issues that the Telepsychology Task Force members focus on throughout the document are the psycho| ogist’s own knowledge of and competence in the provision of telepsychology and the need to ensure that the client/ patient has a full understanding of the potentially increased risks to loss of security and confidentiality when using technologies. An additional key issue discussed by the task force members was interjurisdictional practice.
  • 44. "F‘lf'v‘E$TA{HF, m>TH telehealth. org Conclusion It is important to note, that it is not the intent of these guidelines to prescribe specific actions, but rather, to offer the best guidance available at present when incorporating telecommunication technologies in the provision of psychological services. Because technology and its applicability to the profession of psychology is a dynamic area with many changes likely ahead, these guidelines also are not inclusive of all other considerations and are not in tended to take precedence over the judgment of psychologists or applicable laws and regulations that guide the profession and practice of psychology.

S. Supreme Court to uphold the Affordable Care Act moves our country forward on the path to extending health coverage to tens of millions of uninsured persons, reducing health care costs and ending discriminatory insurance practices. Since the passage of the act two years ago, millions have benefited from health insurance coverage — including children with pre-existing conditions (including mental disorders). young adults who can now stay on their parents‘ health plan until age 26 and older adults via access to prescription drugs at affordable rates. Certain vital preventive services are now covered free of charge by private insurers. as well as by Medicare and a Prevention and Public Health Fund was created. Furthermore, when the state insurance exchanges go into effect in 2014, millions more individuals will have access to health coverage for mental and behavioral health and substance use services as “essential health benefits" and with the same level of access and coverage they enjoy for physical health services.

June 27, 2012 / PRNewswireI — Valueoptionso. a health improvement company that specializes in emotional wellbelng and recovery. and American Well‘''‘ today announced a partnership to bring critically-needed behavioral healthcare to patients wherever they are. whenever they need it. Using American WelI's industry-leading Online Care telehealth solution. Valueoptions will transform behavioral healthcare by offering members immediate. live and clinically meaningful consultations. With American Well technology. Valueoptions vvlll develop a first-of-its-kind. national network of telehealth-enabled providers. Through Online Care. Valueoptlons members will have secure and private access to skilled behavioral specialists from home. work or any location where they have lntemet connectivity. Telehealth removes many barriers to healthcare such as distance. mobility and time constraints and can help lessen the stigma sometimes associated with behavioral health. Online Care provides Valueoptions an efficient and convenient solution to dramatically enhance behavioral healthcare access and quality for its diverse membership. which Includes both commercial and public sector employees and their families: military servicemen and women and their dependents: as well as Medicaid. Medicare and dual eligible populations. 'With over 130.000 provider locations. we have one of the nation's largest behavioral health networks. However. the reality is that there are still not enough providers to serve the growing demand for quality behavioral health services in every comer of the United States. Access to care is an issue for many. " said Hayward Donlgan. president and CEO of Valueoptions. "Growing demand for telebehavioral health services is evidenced by the speed at which reimbursement is accelerating. Today. 34 state Medicaid programs have recognized the need and the value of telehealth services. These 34 states already reimburse for such services. and 14 states are mandating telehealth reimbursement. Additionally. we continue to witness increased demand for telehealth In the Federal marketplace as well as a growing interest In our commercial business segments. " "Onllne Care telehealth allows us to bring behavioral health directly to our members. " adds Dr. Hal Levine. chief medical officer of Valueoptions. "Whether location or transportation inhibits access. or perhaps a member is simply having trouble taking that important first step toward engaging available services. telehealth enables us to connect with the member where they are - not just where they are located. but where they are In mindset when It comes to seeking treatment. " Valueoptlons will harness telehealth to reduce the rate of missed appointments and Increase compliance. Moreover. with Online Care. Valueoptlons will build a more efficient. more convenient model for care delivery that vvlll complement existing in-person services. lead to better health outcomes for members. enhance the bottom line for providers. and eventually. reduce costs for the system of care.
