ENDORSED AND VALIDATED
Telepsychiatry is an increasingly
common method of conducting evaluations and providing
psychiatric services. In 1998, the American Psychiatric
Association endorsed telepsychiatry via video conferencing
for a variety of purposes including Forensic Telepsychiatry.
Numerous research studies have recently supported
the reliability of telepsychiatry assessment as a
cost effective and client accepted modality.
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.
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.
