I’m pleased to announce that we’ve released the 2019 update of our Telemental Health Laws survey. Now in its fourth year, the survey covers state telehealth laws, regulations, and policies within mental health and is available as a complimentary app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
Please see our full announcement detailing milestones achieved in 2019, current barriers, and opportunities for 2020 and beyond: “Epstein Becker Green Finds Telehealth Services Are Increasingly Accessible to Mental Health Professionals Despite Legislative Barriers.”
Also see our Telemental Health Laws: Overview, which goes into greater depth on our findings from the survey.
As I state in our release, we are excited to see telehealth services more widely accepted at the state and federal level. Telehealth is a viable and efficient method of care for patients who require quality treatment that may not be close by. It also gives providers an opportunity to share their services and expertise with underserved segments and geographies they couldn’t serve otherwise.
