Can medication be prescribed with telepsychiatry?

With our ePrescribe feature, psychiatrists can electronically fill and send prescriptions directly to their patients’ pharmacy of choice.

How effective is telepsychiatry?

Over the years, many well designed studies have been conducted demonstrating the clinical equivalency between a traditional face-to-face session and one conducted using telepsychiatry.

Are patients comfortable with the platform?

Yes, they are. In fact, some patients even prefer receiving treatment through videoconferencing. Sessions are scheduled within days, eliminating the need to identify a psychiatrist nearby– who may be located hours away, as is the case in many areas– then wait several months for an initial appointment. Many individuals appreciate the privacy the platform affords and feel more comfortable seeing psychiatrists remotely, without worrying that they will encounter their psychiatrists in their community.
