Telehealth: Increasing Access to Behavioral Health Services
The use and reputation of telemedicine in the healthcare industry has continued to increase over the years as more and more payers and providers are seeing it as a viable solution. Telemedicine’s ability to control cost in complex clinical and behavioral health cases as well as increase quality access to care is proof that it will only become more popular in the future. This article from healthcarefinancenews.com shares in depth how telemedicine use cases are showing promise of utilization.

Telemedicine technology has been improving steadily over the past several years, and as the tech gets better, so does its reputation.
Increasingly, payers and providers are realizing that telemedicine has the potential to control costs, but the sector has now crossed a threshold. Complex clinical cases and behavioral health are now being treated viably using a virtual approach.
Much of telemedicine’s appeal lies in accessibility. The lack of access to care through telemedicine negatively affects patient engagement and follow-through, according to new research from telehealth provider Teladoc. Treating mental health in particular becomes easier, less costly and less stigmatized when behavioral health treatment can take place in a virtual setting.
