Telepractice (aka telemedicine, telehealth)
TheraChoice is currently looking into Telepractice. Telepractice is the means of providing speech, occupational therapy over a computer – via videoconferencing. Some states still have not adopted the use of Telepractice by which insurance companies will cover the therapy, however, private-pay is an option.
All therapy procedures will still follow the strict guidelines relating to Hipaa.
Clients would need to be utilizing a computer with videoconferencing software – requiring a camera, microphone, and a quiet setting, whether in client’s home or school setting. Most Telepractice sessions take place in a school setting.
