S. Veterans Affairs health care system delivered more effective mental health services to nearly 100,000 patients than standard, face-to-face encounters during 2007-2010, demonstrated by its slashing the rate of psychiatric hospitalizations. "This is the first large-scale study to show that telemedicine dramatically reduced hospital admissions and total hospitalized days, " Dr. Linda S. Godleski said May 6 at the annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. "The decreased hospitalization rate may be explained by increased access to services. Patients do not wait [to get mental health sessions] until they are completely decompensated" when mental health care services are more readily available by telemedicine, said Dr. Godleski, director of the national telemental health center for the Department of Veterans Affairs and a psychiatrist at Yale University in New Haven, Conn. She and her associates reviewed 98,609 VA patients who required mental health services and were new to the agency's telemental health . »:- ,3 ,3 ‘ program during 2007-2010.

  • 7. The results from prior VA studies proved that telemental health was noninferior to face-to-face encounters Ieadin to the bur eonin ro ram. The on! factor limitin rowth ofthe current hub-and-spoke model is the availability of information technology for high-speed links to remote VA sites. The VA is uniquely suited to telemedicine because its structure precludes issues of reimbursement and professional licensing in different states, and the VA can easily transfer patient records between care-delivery sites through electronic medical records. Patients can freely choose between the convenience of telemedicine or traditional face-to-face mental health care, and in general patients opt for telemedicine, especially those under age 65, Dr. Godleski said. when resistance to wider telemedicine exists, it's usually from clinicians, she noted. ‘ The next frontier is providing telemental health to patients at home or other patient-selected sites via personal computers and mobile phones. Having this option widely available and documenting its efficacy "will be a game changer, " Dr. Godleski predicted.
  • 8. ValueOptions and American Well Partner to Deploy the First National Behavioral Telehealth Network NORFOLK, Va. and BOSTON, June 27, 2012 / PRNewswire/ — VaIueOptions®, a health improvement company that specializes in emotional wellbeing 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 WeII'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 will develop a first-of-its-kind, national network of telehealth-enabled providers. Through Online Care, Valueoptions members will have secure and private access to skilled behavioral specialists from home, work or any location where they have Intemet 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 Heyward Donigan, 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. " "Online 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. " Valueoptions will harness telehealth to reduce the rate of missed appointments and increase compliance. Moreover, with Online Care, Valueoptions will build a more efficient, more convenient model for care delivery that will 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.

  • 10. ATA: Telemedicine Benefits from supreme court’s PPACA Ruling (July 28, 2012 - Washington, DC) According to the American Telemedicine Association, today’s Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) will have a positive impact on the development and adoption of telehealth. The ruling will further accelerate the deployment rate for telemedicine, mHea| th and other remote healthcare technologies. The Association cites four reasons for this projection: 1. The announcement lifts the cloud of uncertainty that has caused many health providers to delay decisions to modernize and invest in such areas as telemedicine and related technologies. 2. Upholding the PPACA protects valuable investments in telemedicine made by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMl. ) Over the past two years, the CMMI has invested heavily in telemedicine pilot projects and other remote healthcare services. The funding status for these programs is unaffected. 3. The Courts affirmation does not affect any of the bipartisan drivers behind the growth and adoption of telemedicine, in particular the provisions for managed and accountable care, medical homes, and care coordination. Telemedicine, as a healthcare delivery service, is crucial to the success of these programs. 4. The fundamental value proposition of telemedicine remains strong. Telemedicine has consistently proven to deliver a wide-range of quality, cost-effective healthcare services, anywhere at anytime. Moreover, telemedicine enjoys high levels of patient satisfaction and customer demand. “Now that the Supreme Court has ruled, we can move forward with the modernization of our healthcare rlnlhuaru eueharn infnnrafinn halcarnnrlit-inn in imnrntln r-aro rnrhu-A I-Aefe and int-rnaen at-I-nee ‘Far nunnlnnn in
