Telehealth Group Therapy

telehealth group therapyTelehealth Group Therapy

Many highly skilled group therapy clinicians have been forced into telehealth group therapy practice without thoughtful guidance or the ability to learn anything beyond basic telehealth skills. A seasoned group therapist knows that a wide variety of reimbursement and clinical issues can erupt in front of the whole group, leaving the clinician at a loss for what to do if such events erupt in telehealth group therapy. With the need for telehealth group therapy grows with COVID, clinicians continue to be challenged by complex telehealth group therapy issues for which they cannot find evidence-based answers.

HIPAA and Telehealth Group Therapy

Furthermore, when dealing with Protected Health Information (PHI) in situations involving telehealth group therapy and HIPAA privacy rule, the clinician may unwittingly create undue vulnerabilities for everyone involved. They must know how to operate their technology and establish group rules with an understanding of what can go wrong, and how to prevent intentional as well as unintentional privacy and confidentiality violations.
