Though society has become more and more reliant on technology to improve and streamline patient care, little advancement has been made in the behavioral health field. Learn how technology can promote linkage to needed mental health services and increase long term engagement in services, decrease self-stigma of mental illness and increase motivation for change, and reduce suicidal behaviors (ideation and attempt). Discuss the benefits of telehealth for organizations with limited resources and improving access for individuals in need of specialty care.
After completing this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify 2 technology methodologies that aid with patient engagement.
- Understand the implications for risk reduction and engagement in treatment when using technology enabled patient care.
