The Telehealth Capitol Connection
To meet the growing interest in using telemedicine to improve health care delivery, ATA, with the briefing expertise and thought leadership of Neal Neuberger launched the Telehealth Capitol Connection (TCC), a bi-monthly briefing series for Congress, federal agencies, national organizations, and other interested stakeholders.
Topic: Telehealth for Improving Mental and Behavioral Care
The use of innovative communication technologies to address mental and behavioral health services is growing rapidly. Telemental health services – particularly mobile applications – are helping to address a shortage of professionals, the challenge of remote care delivery, and, employee absenteeism just as the nation struggles with suicide, workplace stress, opioid addiction, and a host of other serious behavioral health issues. Interactive audio, video, and, now “text therapy” services allow patients an effective way to access licensed healthcare providers while avoiding the stigma of receiving care.
Join us for for a lunch discussion on the state and national policy issues and opportunities facing the widescale implementation of telehealth for behavioral care.
