Risk Management Group Telepsychiatry is an effective means to treat patients and to expand their access to mental health services. This webinar provides an overview of key legal, regulatory, privacy and security considerations, including standard of care, licensure, online prescribing and medication management, informed consent, international telemedicine, as well as anticipated regulatory changes and competencies, such as digital literacy. Potential risks with the expanded use of telepsychiatry and risk mitigation strategies when using this modality will be discussed. This Webinar will discuss the risks and benefits of using telemedicine in psychiatry, provide important legal and regulatory information to reduce the likelihood for a medical malpractice claim or licensing board complaint and provide risk mitigation strategies to reduce potential liability and build a strong defense.
