Telebehavioral and Telemental Health Best Practices: Starting a Legal and Ethical Telepractice

Gain a better understanding of the legal and ethical guidelines for providing telepsychology services. Among the many benefits of telehealth and telemedicine for practitioners are increased flexibility in scheduling, reduced overhead, the ability to work from home in many circumstances, and greater access to specialty populations because the area served is one's entire state(s) of licensure. From this material, you can expect to obtain introductory information about best practices related to telepractice to help get you started. Topics will include models for successful telepractice; licensure; competencies; types and cost of equipment; HIPAA and HITECH; Skype® and FaceTime™; cloud storage, text messaging, informed consent; handling emergencies; documentation requirements; and reimbursement.
