Abstract

Telemedicine is one strategy to improve the accessibility of mental health care in the primary care setting, including primary care clinics linked to academic medical centers. Successful applications of telemedicine will be facilitated by an awareness of consultation models, as well as of patient, physician, and system factors that affect psychiatric consultation-liaison service to the primary care setting. In preliminary studies, patient satisfaction with telepsychiatric care is comparable to patient satisfaction with in-person psychiatric care and other specialty care via telemedicine. Controlled trials are needed to further assess patient and provider satisfaction, as well as variables that affect satisfaction.
