Nefsis, a provider of online video conferencing
solutions, announced that Secure TeleHealth has selected Nefsis cloud-based
multipoint HD video conferencing technology for its Telepsychiatry Platform
Secure TeleHealth uses business-grade videoconferencing
technology provided by Nefsis,
off-the-shelf PC-based equipment, and an Internet connection to provide clinics
and behavioral health practitioners an encrypted platform for Telepsychiatry.
Telepsychiatry is the application of telemedicine to the
field of psychiatry. Because its practitioners do not need to touch their
patients to treat them, telepsychiatry has become one of the most successful of
all the telemedicine applications.
Psychiatrists can use their PC’s and webcams to provide
assessments, therapy, and to conduct med checks with their clients via an
online video conferencing service from Secure Telehealth. Physicians may connect
from any location, including their professional offices or from their homes.
“We have found that cloud-based video conferencing
is an especially cost-effective service delivery method for rural Medicaid
clinics to improve community access to mental health services,” said Jim
Mountain, president of Secure TeleHealth.
Cloud computing technology makes telepsychiatry as
accessible as any other online service. All the heavy processing occurs on
shared resources in the Nefsis cloud, making it less expensive and easier to
maintain for the customer without the financial risk of installing on-premise,
hardware-based infrastructure such as video-specific routers, gateway and
“Cloud-based online video conferencing allows
behavioral health care providers the ability to increase efficiency, reduce
travel costs, and improve the process of providing care, making it a
game-changing technology well suited for this market,” said Steven
Peltier, chief executive officer, Nefsis.
