MORGAN HILL, Calif., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than half the counties in the United States do not have a practicing psychiatrist, psychologist or social worker, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (USA Today, May 12, 2014). TeleHealth365 connects healthcare workers with patients in their own homes, a 'doctor at home' service.
TeleHealth365 Inc. is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with the TeleMental Health Institute (TMHI) to bring FREE, HIPAA-compliant video conferencing to all behavioral providers, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other healthcare providers.
By combining their innovative technology with professional training from TMHI, Telehealth365 is bringing the best of all worlds to providers who want to leverage the power of technology to expand their programs and practices to serve more people in need.
Geoff Murphy, Vice President of Business Development at TeleHealth365 said, "We recognize TMHI as the world's leader in risk management training for telemental health."
Dr. Marlene Maheu, the founder of TMHI and a pioneer in the field of telemental health, said, "Telehealth365 offers quality videoconferencing services for free. All serious health care providers ought to look at this platform before setting up their virtual office."
Dr. Maheu expressed her enthusiasm for Telehealth365. She explained, "It is remarkable that professionals can now deliver this quality care with free technology. When I started training in telehealth decades ago, a single video 'seat' was priced at $100k, and two seats were needed: one for the patient and the other for the provider. Now, those costs and barriers have been eliminated. Patients can not only stay in their homes for contact with their treating professional, but clinicians can usually connect with them from their own homes or offices rather than going to expensive facilities - and all for free."
The TeleMental Health Institute, Inc. is the world's first online telemental health training, consulting and staffing institute, devoted exclusively to addressing the emerging opportunities and challenges of telepsychology, online counseling and online therapy. TMHI offers convenient 24/7 internet access to 100% online courses for continuing education (CEU) and continuing medical education (CME) credit. Contact the Institute at: www.telehealth.org/courses. TMHI is offering 10% off to all TeleHealth365 healthcare providers.
