Therapy enters the 21st century. A secure, HIPAA compliant, internet-based, video platform that eliminates the need to travel to the office. This is not just for the tech savvy.
Telehealth is an exciting development that merges traditional health care services, including psychotherapy, with modern technology. While many see this as a new development, it has actually been around for many years. In 1959, doctors first used two-way TV images to communicate between sites interactively.
Of course, technology has come a long way since those early days and interactive communication is now available in the privacy of our homes via computer, tablet, or even smart phones.
