Explore how asynchronous telepsychiatry (in which medical information is collected and sent via email or Web applications for later expert review and advice) offers powerful and cost-effective behavioral health expertise to primary care and other settings. Furthermore, examine how artificial intelligence tools like word recognition and language translation extend the benefits of asynchronous telepsychiatry to people with limited English proficiency.
