Telepsych Assistant

“The goal of our telemedicine program for psychiatry is simple: Provide our patients access to specialty psychiatric care while also affording them
the privilege of shared access to their physical and mental health records by medical and psychiatric providers,” explains Sue King, licensed clinical social worker at River Valley Health & Dental.

River Valley Health & Dental contracted with InSight + Regroup, a telepsychiatry technology and services vendor, to provide psychiatric specialty care. River Valley Health & Dental has a registered Medical Assistant designated to work with the psychiatry providers to complete rooming, scheduling, securing consents and releases of information, and to be a conduit for communication between the psychiatrist and the patient’s medical provider in the office.
