TELEHEALTH POLICIES AND CONSENT

When you agree to receive TeleHealth psychotherapy services through SimplePractice:

  1. You understand that my health care provider wishes me to engage in a telehealth consultation.

  2. You understand that video conferencing is not the same as face to face in that you will not be in the same room with the provider. Telehealth is a proven effective technological method for provision of mental health services.

  3. You understand that a telehealth consultation has potential benefits including easier access to care and the convenience of meeting from a location of my choosing.

  4. You understand there are potential risks to this technology, including interruptions, unauthorized access, and technical difficulties. you understand that my health care provider or you can discontinue the telehealth consult/visit if it is felt that the videoconferencing connections are not adequate for the situation.

  5. If there is any failure in connectivity, interrupting the normal flow of the session, a phone call will be used to complete the session.

  6. You should treat these sessions just like regular mental health sessions with my provider. you should be on time and adequate clothing is required.

  7. My environment is only able to be controlled by me. you should make sure to ensure you am in a private setting and that there will be no to minimal interruptions. Pueblo Pioneer Psychology encourage you to use an independent room with door.

  8. You understand you will have the opportunity to have a direct conversation with my provider, during which you will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding this procedure.
