Psychoanalysis Just A Click Away With TeleMedTM Psychiatry™

TeleMedTM Psychiatry™ takes the guesswork, and the expense, out of telepsychiatry with fully secure, high quality online video therapy sessions.

COLD SPRING, N.Y., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleMedTM announces the launch of TeleMedTM Psychiatry, a first-of-its-kind telepsychiatry solution designed to give mental health providers and patients scheduled access to one another through secure online video therapy, regardless of location. TeleMedTM was developed by Aurora Information Technology, Inc., a widely-regarded medical website design and medical marketing company located in Cold Spring, NY, just north of New York City.

Fully supported by the American Psychiatric Association, telepsychiatry is a trusted channel for delivering psychiatric support including diagnosis, ongoing therapy, and prescription management. In remote regions of the world, telemedicine is highly successful in long-distance medical care and preventative services. TeleMedTM Psychiatry achieves seamless connectivity with Apple and PC-Microsoft operating systems. For doctors and patients on the go, the Google Chromebook by Samsung is a perfect, private portal for separating TeleMedTM Psychiatry from personal computer usage.

Domestically, online psychiatric care has tremendous potential in forensic psychology, Veteran and military counseling, inmate therapy, drug and alcohol counseling, and for those who are homebound or in assisted living care. But until recently there was no way for providers to ensure full HIPAA-compliant security measures while conducting online talk therapy with mainstream patients.

Doctors love it, patients need it.

Daniel Gilbert, CEO and President of TeleMedTM eases entry to this in-demand medical service. "For years our clients have been eager to embrace online video sessions for medicine and psychiatry, but the cost of entry has been prohibitive and the security unreliable. We're giving doctors a custom, easy, and affordable tool that securely connects them to patients with the click of a button."

The benefits of TeleMedTM Psychiatry are numerous. The guesswork is gone, as are the expensive proprietary hardware and time consuming setup procedures historically required for a practice to get this kind of service off the ground. TeleMedTM Psychiatry provides an all-inclusive option for practices of all sizes, ensuring the utmost professional and private care.

"Patients can't wait for their psychiatrists to offer online therapy," stresses Gilbert. "TeleMedTM Psychiatry cuts the hassle for them, too – no driving, no waiting rooms; it's all in the privacy and convenience of their home or closed-door office. Best of all, it's simple and intuitive. All it takes to get started is a webcam and broadband Internet access."

Video sessions eliminate all barriers to consistent, quality mental healthcare and they give patients access to top medical professionals regardless of where they live. "The idea that patients can simply log in, pick an appointment time, pay, and chat is very appealing to them," adds Gilbert. "Especially for those in rural or remote areas where immediate access to quality care may be lacking."

Doctors: Meet TeleMedTM Psychiatry

With your current webcam and broadband Internet connection, TeleMedTM Psychiatry will have your online psychiatry practice up and running with confirmed patient appointments.

TeleMedTM Psychiatry has unmatched affordability with plans starting at just $179.95/month, including:

  • Face-to-face video sessions for instant provider-patient connectivity from anywhere
  • One-click secure session recording, fully encrypted treatment notes, and exportable patient data
  • Provider-controlled online "office" hours for self-scheduling by patients
  • Free customized website to promote your new online video sessions
  • Secure dashboard for behind-the-scenes appointment management and reminders
  • Automatic patient credit card billing and direct deposit to your account

TeleMedTM Psychiatry is easy to set up and the demand is so great that return on investment is practically immediate. "Patient referrals and more profitable encounters with existing patients are just the beginning," stated Gilbert, "With TeleMedTM Psychiatry, providers can grow their practice without adding overhead. In fact, our clients are looking forward to decreasing overhead – and stress – by trading office time for online time in the comfort of their homes."

Americans depend on the web for almost all daily activities – working, banking, shopping, and socializing. We're entering a time when doing things offline is a costly waste of time or, at the very least, a nuisance. But that doesn't mean consumers or patients are willing to sacrifice quality. "That's where TeleMedTM Psychiatry shines," Gilbert said. "We have the solution for putting top psychiatrists in contact with patients who demand, and pay for, the best care."

TeleMedTM will soon launch online practice platforms tailored to other medical specialties, and will also make their products available in other countries and languages.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
