Prior to beginning work on this discussion, view the video Betting on the Future, read the required articles by Luxton, Pruitt & Osenbach (2014) and Novotney (2011), and review the required websites. In addition, research a minimum of one peer-reviewed article from the Ashford University Library which reports research findings on the reliability or validity of mental health testing via telehealth. Do note that it is customary to include any of the following remote methods under the framework of “telehealth”: telephone, video conferencing, interactive websites, email, or online chat. For this discussion, you will take on the role of a mental health professional in private practice who is considering providing telehealth assessment services. You are researching the types of services you could provide in order to present your ideas to one of the world’s leading healthcare investors introduced in this week’s assigned video. In your initial post, begin with a paragraph briefly summarizing the types of mental health assessments which can be provided over the phone or through other remote methods such as video conferencing, interactive websites, email, or online chat. Analyze your peer-reviewed journal research article(s) and explain the types of testing and assessments that are best suited for telehealth delivery. Evaluate the ethical issues involved in providing psychological assessment and testing services via telehealth methods. Research typical costs for comparable in-person psychological assessment and testing services and report your findings to the class. Identify a menu of psychological assessment services you would like to offer and explain how your model would deliver cost-effective and competent assessment services in comparison to in-person assessment services. Distinguish any specific types of psychological testing that should not be administered remotely and explain your rationale.
