Two Health Care Reform and TeleMental Health Interviews Were Released by Polycom this Week
According to the Governing Institute’s recent survey of state and local public health officials’ health priorities for 2015, mental health requirements were ranked as their most pressing concern. As policy and reimbursement models catch up with technology and cost savings needs, there is a growing focus on telehealth as a way to create or extend treatment programs. Polycom invited my comments about telemental health in two interview formats this month.
