Telehealth Consent to Participate
I have been offered the opportunity to receive services through interactive, phone/web-based video and/or audio technology. I have been advised of the benefits and risks associated with this type of service, and have had the chance to address any concerns I might have regarding telepsychiatry services.
I will get instructions on how the equipment works before I receive any services. My participation is voluntary and I may choose to end telehealth services at any time and request face-to-face service when it becomes available. When I am receiving services using this technology, I am aware of who is present in the room at the other location. I have been informed that at no time will the telehealth sessions I receive be recorded or used for any other purpose.
The services I receive will become a part of my treatment record at ABCS. My providers will have access to mental health and/or substance abuse information about me. This consent DOES NOT REPLACE any other ABCS consent forms or releases of information that I may have signed.
I understand the above and agree to receive services through telehealth.
