I am delighted to be scheduled to speak about telemental health at the CIBHS’ annual National Behavioral Health Information Management Conference and Exposition, to be held at the Hyatt Regency in Orange County, Garden Grove, CA. Conference dates are April 27-28.
This is one of the most helpful conferences that I attend every year. If you’ve never been, I urge you to give it try. If you have attended in the past, you most assuredly will agree that it is one of the best, most carefully planned and executed yearly events in our industry. It is in Disneyland country this year, so bring the family and enjoy yourself at the same time.
This is the title of my program this year: Telehealth interventions for behavioral healthcare: Diverse uses, privacy and security considerations, and practical strategies for implementation. I’ll be giving an updated summary of current issues, and taking audience questions as per the program description below:
Telehealth interventions for behavioral healthcare: Diverse uses, privacy and security considerations, and practical strategies for implementation Marlene Maheu, PhD, Executive Director, TeleMental Health Institute, Inc. Telehealth has been used for many years in a regulatory environment that provides guidelines for the interventions and their reimbursement. In this session presenter will define and describe types of telehealth interventions including online counseling, audiovideo assessment and counseling, telephonic counseling, and audio-video psychiatric consultations. She will review legal and regulatory issues, including those posed by HIPAA and 42CFR.2, and how to address them. She will also review best practices by type of intervention and client situation, and how telehealth can provide access to care that would not otherwise be feasible.
The full program for the entire conference can be seen here.
If you plan to attend, please make time for joining me at yet another TMHI MEETUP! These no-host dinner events are more than a good dinner party. They’ve gotten to be the occasion for reunions, referrals, employee recruiting, business deals, and plenty of well-focused networking, of course. Register here.
I hope to see you there!
