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. For more information about how quickly and efficiently you can establish your online telepsychiatry practice, contact a representative at 888-503-3009 or visit www.telepsychtm.com.

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
