Grow your telepractice service by delivering telemental health interpreting. New care models and payment structures are evolving to answer provider concerns. Telebehavioral and telemental health interpreting services are now available 24/7 in over 200 languages for hospitals and other settings.

Consider these facts:

  • More than 63 million visits to physician offices and hospital outpatient and emergency departments annually have behavioral disorders as the primary diagnosis.*
  • Between 1990 and 2013, the limited English proficient (LEP) population grew 80 percent from nearly 14 million to 25.1 million – or, one in nine people in the U.S. speak a language other than English as their primary language.**

Better behavioral outcomes can be realized for clients/patients by increasing the access and availability of treatment to underserved populations. Join Dr. Maheu and Ms. Canetti for this FREE webinar to get the facts!
