Due to COVID, this is my current method of therapy, which is convenient as you can attend in the comfort of your own home! I utilize a HIPAA compliant site called Theranest, so you can feel safe in knowing that your documents and our conversations are secure.
Do you need support for an illness or disorder, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?
Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep doctor appointments?
Do you lack health insurance, or does your health insurance fail to fully cover your medical needs?
Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smart phone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing doctors and nurses to interact with patients through a convenient phone call.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
In the United States, approximately 80 million people have inadequate health insurance, or no health insurance at all. Telehealth can be more affordable for clients paying out of pocket.
So if this sounds like you:
- You lack health insurance, or recently lost coverage
- Your health problem isn’t covered by your insurance
- You don’t have the right type of medical professional nearby
- You lack the time or resources to get to an in-person medical appointment
- You want the ease and convenience of a video conference appointment
… then Telehealth services may be just what you need.
The convenience of scheduling an appointment through a phone app cannot be understated. Quickly pick a date and time, and you’ve scheduled your online appointment. There’s no need to get ready, or even leave your bed or couch. If you have social anxiety or phobias that cause you to avoid social interactions, Telehealth makes it easier for you to get therapy.
