Would you like to talk with a professional, but you are concerned with how to make time for a traditional office visit? Many insurance companies will now allow you to seek treatment via your phone or computer. You can choose from one of our many payment options for our Oklahoma City Clinicians or make cash payments to speak with providers throughout the US.
Although there is value in a face-to-face setting for outpatient services, we do understand that this may not be an option for you.
Therefore, we have invested in Zoom, a HIPAA compliant software program that can be accessed on your phone during your lunch break or in the car while the kids are at soccer practice.
Teletherapy refers to the scope of individual, marriage, and family therapy practice of diagnosis, evaluation, consultation, intervention and treatment of behavioral, social, interpersonal disorders through synchronous or asynchronous two-way electronic communication including but not limited to telephone, video conferencing, email, text, instant messaging, and social media.
Spring Eternal will use teletherapy for the purposes mentioned above. Teletherapy clinical services will be used in the following major ways:
- Video conferencing, which is used for real-time patient-provider consultations, and provider-to-provider discussions.
- Use of electronic devices to transmit patient health information to health care providers/agency.
The use of teletherapy assists in improving the availability of counseling services by providing the following:
- More access to qualified providers
- Decreased travel time to services
- Reduced cancellations due to illness
The quality of service delivered via teletherapy will be consistent with the quality of service delivered in face-to-face settings. The use of teletherapy does not remove any existing responsibilities in delivering services. All providers must adhere to Code of Ethics, Scope of Practice, and all state and federal laws, on professional practice. Please be aware that standards of practice may vary from state to state.
