Programs that allow health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in remote locations using telecommunications technology. Telemedicine permits two-way, real time interactive communication between the patient, and the physician or other practitioners at a distant site. Some programs may also incorporate other forms of communication including transfer of medical information such as CT scans, MRIs, ultrasound studies, radiographic images and pathology images to medical personnel at another site for review and analysis. The technology is also being used in other related areas of practice (e.g., mental health, substance use disorders, gambling) as well as for teaching and remote caregiving purposes.

United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth and Technology - AfterDeploymentIn 2006, Congress mandated the U.S. Department of Defense to develop an online resource addressing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health conditions commonly occurring after a deployment. A recent Institute of Medicine (IOM) study found that 13 to 20 percent of the 2.6 million service members deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan since 2001 may suffer from PTSD. The IOM noted that only slightly more than half of those diagnosed with PTSD actually received treatment. This “treatment gap” was viewed to be the result of three factors: stigma, difficulty accessing care and health care workers not suitably trained to treat PTSD. The need is clear. To meet this need, the Defense Department’s National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) developed, and maintains, AfterDeployment (AD). The website was designed to work as a self-care solution. While the general congressional mandate was to focus on the period after deployment, the content, crafted to provide topical comprehensiveness, evolved to more broadly cover the entire deployment spectrum, from pre-deployment through deployment to redeployment. Features were developed to provide an immersive, interactive experience. The material was aimed at a diverse population with the intention of normalizing adjustment problems following a deployment. AD continues to evolve and gain recognition. In 2010 a “Provider Portal” was introduced to add support for health care professionals treating patients with behavioral health issues. The 2013 Interagency Task Force on Military and Veterans Mental Heath Interim Report recognized AD as a premiere DoD web-based psychological health care tool. As AD passes its 5th year anniversary milestone, exciting plans are underway that include expanding content and developing innovative design concepts to enhance user experience.

United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth and Technology - MilitaryParentingParenting for Service Members and Veterans is an anonymous, online self-help course designed to help the military community improve their parenting skills. It provides military and veteran parents with tools and practical advice to help them reconnect with their families after a separation, strengthen relationships with their children and build upon their existing parenting skills. Using stories from real veteran and military families, interactive activities and a curriculum developed by leading experts, MilitaryParenting helps parents address both everyday parenting problems and family issues unique to their military history. Since 2001, lengthy and multiple combat deployments have disrupted life for millions of military family members. This course can help these parents reintegrate and reconnect with their children, whether they are returning from a current deployment or have reintegrated many years ago. Parents with combat injuries or mental health concerns can find strategies for parenting in the face of such personal challenges. All parents, whether struggling or satisfied with their children’s behavior, will find MilitaryParenting gives them tools they can use today to teach their children skills and values that they can keep for a lifetime. The MilitaryParenting course provides a strength-based approach for addressing parenting issues before more serious issues arise. Registration is not required to take the course, and no personal information is ever requested or stored by the website. MilitaryParenting is a stand-alone course, but it may be used with in-person counseling. The Web course is not intended to replace mental health treatment and offers parents specific guidelines on when they might seek professional help for their child or family. This course was developed as part of the DoD/VA Integrated Mental Health Strategy. The National Center for Telehealth & Technology and the Veterans Administration partnered with each other to lead this effort. This was established to advance a coordinated public health model to improve access, quality, and efficiency of mental health services for all active duty service members, National Guard and Reserve members, veterans, and their families.United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth & TechnologyUnited States Department of Defense
United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth & TechnologyThe National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) is a component center of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE). Utilizing a range of standard and innovative solutions, T2 recommends, coordinates and manages the development of an integrated DoD telehealth system for the provision of quality, patient-centric psychological and TBI health care services. The geographic dispersion of beneficiaries creates challenges for the Military Health System in providing behavioral health care. Telehealth provides opportunities to not only leverage DoD health provider resources and increase access to care through information and telecommunication technologies, but also to cultivate new, more efficient methods of care delivery. The timely and successful integration of telehealth into the overall DoD health services system requires enterprise-wide strategies, policies, and guidance. T2 is working as a coordinating and resource center focused on the development of a telehealth network of systems across the DoD by leveraging partnerships with the Services, VA, TRICARE, and civilian providers. T2 leads this network to expand the range of services available to rural and underserved locations through the use of various treatment facilities and telehealth technologies. The website contains information on telehealth programs, clinical programs, guides and publications regarding military behavioral health.United States Department of Defense, National Center for Telehealth & TechnologyUnited States Department of Defense
