Parkside is proud to offer Telehealth services including assessment for inpatient care, family therapy for inpatients whose families are located at least 60 miles from our campus and outpatient services as individually arranged.TeleHealth offers patients several advantages over traditional, in-office care.
- No wait times – Services are scheduled at absolute times.
- Convenience – Patients can receive high-quality care without long distance travel or being limited to their community mental health clinic. The patient’s family and support system also benefit from local care delivery instead of traveling.
- Cost to patient – The costs for Telehealth visits are similar to traditional office visits and usually covered by medical insurance.
How it works
For a TeleHealth appointment, services are scheduled and a telehealth invitation sent by email along with simple instructions and any necessary forms. Patients can make any necessary co-payments or patient responsibility payments using credit card or paypal and the portal located on this page. Click the link in the invitation and the session can be engaged. They then connect with our provider with the patient via Zoom Telehealth, which provides for encryption and a safe, confidential session. Patients can ask questions and interact, just as they would in a traditional clinic appointment. The patient documentation appears in electronic health record just as if you were present in Parkside’s hospital or clinic. Each appointment is billable as a clinic visit. Technology used in these Telehealth appointments is HIPAA compliant and easy to use. For more information about our Telehealth services, you can call 918-588-8888.
