VIDEO: Choosing the best technologies, mobile apps for your practice

NEW ORLEANS — In this video, Steven Chan, MD, MBA, of the University of California, San Francisco, explains how health technologies can be used to improve patient’s mental health and well-being.

“Overall, I think it’s up to us as mental health practitioners, psychologists, therapists, and psychiatrists — because we’re the professionals, we’re the gatekeepers — to critically evaluate all the wealth of apps, just as we do with books we recommend, or social services or medications with side effects, benefits and risk, so too we should do this with apps and platforms as well,” he told Healio.com/Psychiatry.

To ensure the app you’re using meets standard requirements, refer to the APA’s mental health app evaluation criteria.
