Discover Telepsychiatry at Coplin Health Systems

What is Telepsychiatry?

Telemedicine has become a vital component of healthcare in the United States, significantly enhancing the accessibility and quality of medical services. Among the various telemedicine applications, telepsychiatry stands out as a crucial solution to the challenges faced by the American public health system, particularly in the realm of mental health. Telepsychiatry bridges the gap in psychiatric care, making high-quality mental health services accessible regardless of geographical location. This innovative approach is transforming patient-centered care, offering affordable and effective interventions for those in need.

Benefits of Telepsychiatry

Telepsychiatry utilizes video and audio technology to provide convenient, affordable, and accessible mental health services. Here are some key benefits:

  • Convenience: Access psychiatric care from the comfort of your home.
  • Flexible Scheduling: Easily fit sessions into your busy schedule.
  • Reduced Travel Time: No need to commute long distances for appointments.
  • Specialized Care: Access to a wider range of specialists.
  • Comfortable Environment: Many patients feel more at ease opening up in familiar surroundings.

Experience shows that while some may initially be hesitant about interacting with a provider via screen, most become comfortable with the format. Many even find it easier to relax and communicate openly from their own homes or a convenient local facility.

Privacy and Security

At Coplin Health Systems, patient privacy and security are paramount in our telepsychiatry services. We adhere to strict confidentiality standards and use secure communication platforms to protect patient information. You can have your appointments in a safe, relaxed space, enhancing the therapeutic experience and fostering open, honest conversations with your provider. This commitment ensures that we provide the best possible care.

Personalized Care

Our telepsychiatry sessions utilize user-friendly technology to ensure a seamless experience for both patients and providers. This accessibility allows patients to focus on their mental health without technological barriers. Dr. Kashin takes a personalized approach to treatment, tailoring plans to meet each patient’s unique needs. This supportive method fosters a strong therapeutic relationship, empowering patients to make meaningful progress in their mental health journeys.

How It Works

For those who prefer in-office appointments, patients are guided to a private room by a behavioral health team member at the time of their appointment. Dr. Kashin will be present on the screen in the room, and a Coplin Health Systems employee will take vitals at the start of the visit. After communicating the vitals to Dr. Kashin, the patient will then begin their confidential consultation. Over time, this setup helps build a strong relationship between patients and practitioners.
