What is Telebehavioral Health?
Telebehavioral health is meant to close the gap in accessibility to care. By using video technology, patients can get the behavioral health help they need. We often see patients in rural areas not being able to access quality care. Since 2010, over 100 rural hospitals that have closed. This statistic alone shows you the very necessity of telebehavioral health. Furthermore, 60% of all counties in the US and 80% of rural counties do have a single psychiatrist readily available for patients. Telemental health solutions can ease the strain on emergency services and extend care options for all people seeking treatment.

Traditional vs. New Behavioral Health Treatment Model
When you take a look at today's mental health treatment model, you'll notice that it's broken. Instead of being proactive, we are often times very reactive. Today's patient needs more proactive telebehavioral health care. With the traditional model, we are waiting until a patient has a crisis when we should be actively checking in and making sure that they do not miss their appointments.

Obstacles to Behavioral Health Treatment
Patients experience many obstacles to behavioral health treatment. These obstacles can be deeply rooted in a patient's culture or be nuisances such as convenience and availability, especially in rural areas. Obstacles such as these cause patients to miss appointments.
At 35%, mental health has the highest no show appointment rate, this results in a $150 billion loss per year for healthcare providers. Telehealth is the solution to closing these gaps in treatment and reducing the no show rate.
