Skype. If you’re thinking about telepractice, you’re thinking about Skype.
Are you aware of the risks and rewards of Skype? More than one national professional association has published statements warning about the dangers of using Skype for behavioral practice.
You might not be sure where to get affordable professional video conferencing services. You’re probably too busy to read the endless blogs or professional listservs about appropriate technologies and where to get them. Yet clients / patients are likely to be asking you to “Skype” them when they can’t come to the office. If you are practicing in the United States, you’re probably also wondering about HIPAA and HITECH, albeit reluctantly. If you are another country, you probably have similar laws to consider.
Join Dr. Marlene Maheu as she gives an update on the current advantages and disadvantages of online therapy using Skype. She’ll fascinate you with the realities of online practice while outlining the pros and cons of HIPAA compliant alternatives to Skype, email and text-messaging. You’ll hear an easy way to find which technologies to safely use for online counseling, and how to quickly comply with your legal and ethical mandates to protect your client’s / patient’s privacy and confidentiality.
