Numerous research studies have recently supported the reliability of telepsychiatry assessment as a cost effective and client accepted modality.


COST EFFECTIVE


Forensic Telepsychiatry eliminates cost of travel for experts and clients without sacrificing quality of expertise because of inaccessibility. Many law firms, agencies, and courtrooms now have video conferencing available. In addition, video conferencing rooms can be rented in most cities for much less than the cost of travel. With IP lines now replacing ISDN, multiple line long-distance call charges can be eliminated.


CLIENT ACCEPTED

Research studies have shown that clients being evaluated both for clinical and forensic purposes by telepsychiatry are invariably satisfied and comfortable with the process. With Forensic Telepsychiatry, clients are less intimidated and quickly become comfortable in the video format. Some studies have indicated that even treatment outcomes using telepsychiatry are no different than in traditional face-to-face encounters.
