The benefits of telepsychiatry have been recognized since the 1960s when Dr. Thomas F. Dwyer, a Massachusetts psychiatrist, predicted video conferencing’s ability to facilitate the treatment of patients. Of course, the technology has come a long way since then and video conferencing is now used in a wide range of health care scenarios including mental health treatment. A recent article in the New York Times discusses how anxious and depressed patients can benefit from therapy without leaving their homes.

The US government is the world’s largest cosumer of information technology. Now the government is taking steps to cut waste and become more effecient.

CIO of the United States Vivek Kundra said “An interesting case study is what the Social Security Administration is doing with videoconferencing. People don’t have to drive down to a Social Security office — they’re doing it through videoconferencing. The General Services Administration recently moved to Google Apps, and part of what they’re going to be doing is using the consumer tools to do video online instead of building these massive brick-and-mortar platforms.”
