John Fortney, PhD, explains his interest in rural telehealth, telepsychiatry and integrated care in an interview with Psychiatry Advisor. He discusses how he first became interested in rural telehealth and telepsychiatry while he was a medical geographer looking at the travel barriers people face when accessing health care services. Telepsychiatry has the potential to expand and has been shown to work well with an integrated care team, which he discusses in his study published in JAMA Psychiatry in 2014.
