This week we are looking at how telehealth is most often used. According to our data, most telehealth is used for evaluation and management (E/M) services for established patients, psychiatry, and specialists. After an initial spike in April 2020, E/M telehealth visits for established patients and specialists have held steady from May thru December 2021. The volume for psychiatry visits has remained virtually consistent since the start of the PHE, demonstrating the continued importance of telehealth for behavioral health.
