What is Telepyschiatry?
ACCESS OHIO provides all community health program services throughout the state to individuals diagnosed with co-occurring mental health disorder and intellectual disability by means of telemedicine. This program is operated in collaboration with Wright State University who receives grant funding through Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities. Click here to learn more about this project. Headquartered in Dayton, the program's goal is mental health recovery by means of multidisciplinary client-centered care in combination with a reduction in healthcare costs for both the consumer and the providers.
The Access Ohio Promise
Although telepsychiatry is a relatively new instrument for mental health practices- here at Access Ohio we are committed to providing patients with a real time, high quality video and audio interaction with a psychiatrist as well as a multidisciplinary treatment team that includes nurses, case management staff, and counselors. Patients and their specialists are able to talk back and forth easily and cover the same information as they would if located in the same room. Often, after a short time, a good tele-psychiatric connection results in "forgetting" the persons involved are not physically in the same room!
