USATODAY.com - Mental health treatment by video growing

USATODAY.com - Mental health treatment by video growing: "Psychiatrists, often in need and hard to find in rural areas, are increasingly turning to video to treat their far-flung patients, illustrating one of the latest growth areas of telemedicine. Once the telemedicine session starts, it's no different than a face-to-face,' said Dr. Umar Latif of the Dallas VA Medical Center, which has been offering psychiatric sessions over video for more than a year. Video medical treatment increasingly is filling the gap in regions of the country where specialists are in short supply. And mental health appointments work especially well over video, enabling therapists to reach many patients who otherwise might not get help, experts say."
And it's as easy to provide this from India - at half the cost ! Medical outsourcing is going to become increasingly popular.
