New Service Offered -Telepsychiatry
Telepsychiatry is the delivery of psychiatric assessment and care through telecommunications technology, typically videoconferencing. It helps meet patients’ needs for convenient and readily- accessible behavioral health services. There is a robust evidence base that indicates telepsychiatry leads to improved outcomes and higher patient satisfaction ratings.
The Counseling Center is pleased to announce that it now offers telepsychiatry services in Holmes County. This was made possible through a grant the Mental Health and Recovery Board received through the Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation.
Launched recently, two of our psychiatric services providers, Vera Astreika, M.D. and Katelyn Stenger, CNP, are scheduling telepsychiatry appointments. While the initial assessment appoint-ment is required to be face-to-face and is offered in the Wooster office, follow up appointments can be scheduled in the Millersburg office. Nurse Roxanne Jones, who assisted with scheduling, said patients were enthusiastic about telepsychiatry. Several cited the cost of gas, or, for the Amish, the cost of a driver, to be a barrier to services in Wooster. Plans are underway to expand the services.
