Myers (psychiatry and behavioral sciences, U. of Washington School of Medicine) and Turvey (psychiatry, U. of Iowa College of Medicine) introduce the telemental health (TMH) model for treating mental disorders in rural and other patients with poor access to care. Following an overview of trends supporting the broader adoption of TMH, contributors discuss demographic changes and professional shortages that contribute to the problem, and solutions that TMH offers through videoconferencing, social networking, mobile applications, and eHealth. They treat clinical, ethical, technical, and business aspects of delivering TMH services. The work includes case studies, documentation templates, a glossary, directory of Telehealth Resource Centers, and websites. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com).
