Abstract

New models of psychiatric intervention are needed to improve the accessibility of mental health care in the primary-care setting, particularly in rural areas of the United States. Some models of service delivery have been successful in suburban and urban settings, but they do not always apply to rural settings. "E-health" innovations like videoconferencing, telephone, secure messaging (e-mail), and the Internet are increasingly being used to provide consultation-liaison service to primary care. This article briefly reviews successful models used in primary care, their application to rural sites, new models for rural sites, and suggestions for future e-health research.
