Telepsychiatry and the Future of Medicine

telepyschiatry (image copyright of Microsoft)Three years ago I started practicing telemedicine by taking care of patients approximately 120 west of Chicago over highly secure/encrypted internet connections. I have found success and gratification in caring for patient through this technology, especially because I have been accessible to individuals in rural Illinois.

As a member of the IL Psychiatric Society Telepsychiatry Committee, we know there is lots of work to do with this new form of practicing medicine. There is a formal standard that we are trying to identify, such as, policies and procedures, protocols, minimum technology requirements, etc. I invite anyone interested to contact me with ideas and to read a great article we found over at ComputerWorld. -Dr. Martinez.
