Pasadena is a city in Los Angeles County, California, United
States. As of 2013, the estimated population of Pasadena was

Pasadena is the ninth-largest city in Los Angeles County. Pasadena
was incorporated on June 19, 1886, becoming only the second city to
be incorporated in what is now Los Angeles County, after Los
Angeles (April 4, 1850). It is one of the primary cultural centers
of the San Gabriel Valley. The city is known for hosting the annual
Rose Bowl football game and Tournament of Roses Parade. In

What is TeleMedicine and TelePsychiatry?
Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information
technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a
distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve
access to medical services that would often not be consistently
available in distant rural communities. It is also used to save
lives in critical care and emergency situations. Although there
were distant precursors to telemedicine, it is essentially a
product of 20th century telecommunication and information
technologies. These technologies permit communications between
patient and medical staff with both convenience and fidelity, as
well as the transmission of medical, imaging and health informatics
data from one site to another. Early forms of telemedicine achieved
with telephone and radio have been supplemented with
videotelephony, advanced diagnostic methods supported by
distributed client/server applications, and additionally with
telemedical devices to support in-home care.
Telepsychiatry is the application of telemedicine to the specialty
field of psychiatry. The term typically describes the delivery of
psychiatric assessment and care through telecommunications
technology, usually videoconferencing. Telepsychiatry services can
be offered through intermediary companies that partner with
facilities to increase care capacities, or by individual providers
or provider groups. Most commonly, telepsychiatry encounters take
place at medical facilities under the supervision of onsite staff,
though at-home models are becoming accepted as long as they are in
compliance with HIPAA standards. One of the drivers behind
telepsychiatry's growth in the United States has been a national
shortage of psychiatrists, particularly in specialty areas such as
child and adolescent psychiatry; telepsychiatry can allow fewer
doctors to serve more patients by improving utilization of the
psychiatrist's time. Telepsychiatry can also make it easier for
psychiatrists to treat patients in rural or under-served areas by
eliminating the need for either party to travel. The most common
means of insurance coverage for telehealth services among the
United States is to incorporate coverage into the Medicare program.
Reimbursement for Medicare-covered services must satisfy federal
requirements of efficiency, economy and quality of care. Since
1999, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement for all kinds of
telehealth services have expanded, requirements of providers have
been reduced, and grants have been given to support telehealth
program adoption. For 2014, the Center for Medicare services does
cover telemedicine services, including telepsychiatry in many
