TelePsychiatry is booming! Are you going to participate? Since the introduction of telepsychiatry years ago, the idea of video conferencing for a psychiatry consult has increasingly become an accepted way to reach patients no matter where they are.
Telemedicine: TelePsychiatry, TelePsychology or TeleTherapy, in a live, secure online video-chat format has proven for years to be an effective way to have sessions with clients. The military has used it for over 25 years, and it has been accepted on the cilivilian side with, in some cases, improved results over in-person sessions.

Medical billing clearinghouses forward electronic claims from healthcare providers to insurance payers. Normally they send the electronic format of the CMS 1500 form also known as the 837p or the electronic form of the UB-04 also known as the 837i. They can also send back information from the insurance payer such as the 835 remit (tells you what is being paid). This back-and-forth between providers and payers is the main service of the clearinghouses.

Three steps a provider needs to do to earn the most from payers. Get credentialed (can take up to 160 days), then work out a contract with the payer (typically 90 to 180 days), and then through a clearinghouse get enrolled with payer to send claims electronically and receive payments electronically too. Then a fourth step would be to make sure your patients have insurance from a payer that you have completed the previous steps.

Concierge medicine is gaining popularity among physicians and patients. Watch for adoption rates to soar in 2018, as more patient-consumers actively seek out doctors willing to shift away from fee-for-service care toward a more economical approach based on monthly membership fees that cover everything except additional services from external labs and testing facilities.
Medical encounters have dramatically changed over the past six decades. In 1960 there was virtually zero focus on documented care – at the most, doctors kept paper notes and shared patient information with specialists on an as-needed-basis. The Electronic Health Records (EHR) created portable, comprehensive patient records that track every detail of daily life, plus collect data across all medical conditions, prescriptions, mental health management, socioeconomic status and so much more. While all these data points provide opportunities to improve patient outcomes and self-directed care, many doctors feel pressured to do more with less.
Thousands of Americans needlessly suffer in isolation with mental health challenges. Telemedicine promises life-changing solutions for veterans with PTSD, elderly patients battling depression, and those with cognitive disabilities living alone. Virtual medical encounters aren't the same as they were a couple of decades ago. Today, psychiatrists and other doctors utilize innovative technologies to bring relief and healing via private therapy sessions using smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.
