What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the use of a HIPAA secure tele-video platform (compare to something like Skype) where you have appointments with your psychiatric prescriber. This means that your telepsychiatry appointments can be anywhere that is private in the state of Colorado to include your home, work office, or your car while your kiddo is at soccer practice. Most clients love the flexibility that telemedicine provides.
Your first appointment will be in-person, but for follow-ups you have the option of being seen via telemedicine, or can continue with in-office visits if that is what you prefer. Depending on what medications you are prescribed, if you opt for telemedicine you will be required to come to the office for an appointment every 3, 6, or 12 months. The specifics of this would be discussed between you and your provider.
