What is Telemedicine?

Telehealth is the practice of providing behavioral health care services to patients through the use of interactive audio and video technology, permitting real-time communication between the patient at the originating site and the provider, for the purpose of diagnosis, consultation, or treatment. This can take the form of real-time video chats, secure email, or phone calls. Although we offer telepsychiatry, we also accept visits at our locations throughout Milwaukee as well for those looking for face-to-face meetings.

Advantages of  Telepsychiatry and Online Psychiatry with American Behavioral Clinics

Telepsychiatry and online psychiatry offer several advantages compared to in-person therapy sessions:

  1. Accessibility:
    • Geographical Reach: People living in remote or rural areas can access psychiatric care without needing to travel long distances.
    • Mobility Issues: Individuals with physical disabilities or mobility issues can receive care more easily.
  2. Convenience:
    • Flexible Scheduling: Patients can schedule sessions outside of traditional office hours, making it easier to fit therapy into their busy lives.
    • Comfort of Home: Patients can participate in sessions from their own homes, which can make them feel more comfortable and open during therapy.
  3. Reduced Stigma:
    • Privacy: Patients might feel less self-conscious about seeking therapy since they don’t have to visit a physical location, reducing the stigma associated with mental health care.
  4. Cost-Effective:
    • Travel Savings: No travel expenses or time spent commuting.
    • Reduced Overhead: Providers might have lower overhead costs, potentially leading to lower fees for patients.
  5. Continuity of Care:
    • Consistency: Patients can maintain their therapy sessions even if they move to a different city or country, or if they frequently travel for work.
    • Crisis Situations: During crises like pandemics, telepsychiatry ensures continuity of care when in-person sessions are not possible.
  6. Access to Specialists:
    • Broader Network: Patients can access a wider range of specialists who might not be available locally.
  7. Patient Engagement:
    • Digital Tools: Use of digital tools and apps for therapy can enhance patient engagement and provide additional resources between sessions.
  8. Timely Interventions:
    • Quicker Appointments: Often, patients can get appointments more quickly than they would with traditional in-person therapy.

These advantages make telepsychiatry and online psychiatry a valuable option for many individuals seeking mental health care.
