Session 6 (2-Day): Incorporating Technology into Your Practice
Technologies have become both a time saver and time consumer in the practice of behavioral health. E-mail has trumped fax and voicemail as a means of communication; however, privacy issues and timeliness concerns makes it less than perfect. Text messaging adds even more immediacy and intimacy in communications, but boundary issues come to the forefront. The faculty will review use of various new technologies such as smartphone apps and online scheduling to help the busy practitioner determine what new technologies should be implemented in their practice. Topics will include: smartphone apps, voice recognition, online appointment scheduling tools, online survey instruments, and professional social media use.
Monday Hardware: iPad, iPhone apps; Scanning software; Secure messaging software; Clinical information; Online scheduling
