Telepractice


Staying connected through telepractice

 

Regardless of our profession, title, or location, we all have one thing in common — a need to stay connected. As we begin to move forward into our collective “new normal”, maintaining that connection to those depending on you is paramount, and in many cases Telepractice may be the answer you’re searching for.
Before implementing you first Telepractice session, please consult your professional organisations, professional liability insurance providers, and local and national laws and regulations regarding Telepractice, as well as this additional information.

 

What is Telepractice (a.k.a telehealth or telemedicine or )?

In short, telemedicine allows for continuity of care when in-person sessions are not practical or feasible.

Whether you’re familiar with it as telehealth or telepractice, telemedicine, remote testing – the common theme is, our customers want to know how to serve their clients during this time so they can continue to deliver clinical, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, behavioral health, and psychoeducational tools and assessments to students and clients at home. 

Telepractice links clinician to client or clinician to clinician for assessment, intervention, and/or consultation via telecommunications. It includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools, and other forms of telecommunications technology
