Familiarize yourself with a successful online practice model that is HIPAA compliant and reimbursed by third-party payors. Identify resources to increase the success of your telemental health practice.

In this webinar, Dr. Maheu will interview Mindy Mueller, Psy.D., and Dawn Sampson, LCSW, founders and developers of TeleConnect Therapies (TCT). They have developed an innovative business model for teletherapy that easily overcomes some of the common obstacles associated with starting an online practice that is HIPAA compliant, including gaining access to third-party payors. TeleConnect Therapies has provided telemental health services to consumers who live in rural and underserved areas for more than two years, and the business is growing.

Our ground-breaking presenters have a keen understanding of establishing business relationships with professional associations and service providers that ensure the success and quality of their telemental health practice. This interview will examine their forward-looking business model for practicing telemental health that is both HIPAA compliant and consumer-oriented.
