Telehealth helps providers reach children with ADHD

Telehealth services can be used to help children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder who live in areas where there isn’t easy access to care, according to a study in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

Telemedicine is improving access for people in underserved areas for many different psychiatric disorders, which includes ADHD, lead study author Kathleen Myers, associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine tells Medscape Medical News.

There is a growing shortage of providers to treat children with mental health disorders, meaning new models of care inceasingly will be necessary, says Myers, who also works as director of Telemental Health Services at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
