and uses for telehealth video in mental
health.
Objectives
• Develop a different approach to providing clinical
consultation and supervision of trainees
• Identify the usefulness of implementing
telehealth video to provide behavioral health
services specific to our clinic

What BHC Looks •Like
at
LCHC?
Immediate and open access to carePCP is able to make personal referral
to the BH provider.
• Maximize patient time as they wait
• Maximizes PCP efficiency during
patient visit
Telehealth Implementation
• Equipment:
– TV or laptop (with built-in or
camera attached),
microphone/speakers, laptop
cart, cable connection/wifi
• Setup:
– Stationary TV (designated BH
room)
– Mobile laptop cart (able to
move between exam rooms)
Type of Use
• Consultation
– BHP Solo: OB screenings alongside care team
– Side by Side: 1 BHP in room/ 1 BHP on video
(supervising)
– Consultation with PCP and care team
• Training
– Shadowing
– Supervision (live)
EMR facilitates remote access
Research and Experience
• Research:
– Studies have found patients benefit and
are not harmed by telemental health
– Effective for various disorders
(agoraphobia, panic d/o, psychotic)
• Studies compared in-person vs video interviews in
psychotic patients concluded that even those with
delusions pertaining to the TV, responded
appropriately to video and did not incorporate their
experience into their delusional system.
• Experience:
– Anecdotally, patients have responded
positively about their experience noting
no difference whether in-person or on
video, more so noting the benefit of
seeing a BHP during their visit regardless
of method used (formal piloting of
research currently underway)
Tele mental Health: Expanded
• Other Uses
– Training
– Supervision
– Consultation with
professionals across
different sites
• Advantages
– Cost-effective live
supervision v two waymirror
– Flexible, convenient and
versatile
– Remote access supervision
• Limitations to consider
– APA guidelines: not to take
the place of face to face
supervision
– Equipment/technical
troubleshooting
Guidelines for use of
