Title: Tele-psychiatry and Behavioral Health Outcomes Tracking Plus a Telehealth Legislative Update


Tele-psychiatry is fast becoming an ideal approach to delivery behavioral health care services in an efficient and consumer-oriented fashion. More and more payers are supportive of the approach however they demand demonstration of positive behavioral and economical outcomes from providers. Learn how to:

  1. Select the ideal measures to track and how to track them in a tele-psychiatry environment
  2. Display these measures in a digital dashboard that can guide practitioners to improve their own practice
  3. Determine the impact of tele-psychiatry services on these measures
  4. Benefit from the latest news on telehealth legislation in Texas


Remain up to date on the latest legislative actions to positively impact your care delivery services [from Steve Love if the DFW Hospital Council]
