David Howlett, director of behavioral health and special projects for Variety Care, said as many as 75 patients have sought treatment through the video conferencing system at the three rural clinics this year.
A heavy percentage of the indigent patients who seek treatment at the rural clinics have underlying psychological issues that contribute to their health problems, he said. "There's no shortage of mental health needs, and it's becoming quite apparent that as we get into this technology we're still having trouble meeting all the needs," he said. Howlett said he set up a similar network for a mental health center previously. The equipment is of the type you might find in any other company that uses video conferencing for meetings and the like, but the network piggybacks the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse network and is specially encrypted so as to protect users' privacy. "It's not as easy as Skype - it's way more secure than that," he said.

David Howlett, director of behavioral health and special projects for Variety Care, said as much as 60 percent of patients seeking medical care also need some type of mental health assistance.
As one of the state's safety net providers, community health centers want to help the whole person. "We try to do that 'warm hand-off' from medical staff to behavioral health, and we have social workers built into our system who help with that process," Howlett said.

Normally access to emotional or psychological resources is limited in places such as Fort Cobb, Tipton and Grandfield, said David Howlett, director of behavioral health and special projects.
Even if networks have the mental health professionals necessary to offer treatment, it’s often simply impossible to get them across the state to where they’re needed. But setting up a videoconference between counselor and patient is another matter, Howlett said.

Normally access to emotional or psychological resources is limited in places such as Fort Cobb, Tipton and Grandfield, said David Howlett, director of behavioral health and special projects.
Even if networks have the mental health professionals necessary to offer treatment, it's often simply impossible to get them across the state to where they're needed. But setting up a videoconference between counselor and patient is another matter, Howlett said. "It's a different modality of treatment that's possible with technology, a way to connect services to a population that's traditionally been difficult to reach," he said. Howlett said Variety Care's telepsychology services are secure and confidential, piggybacking on an encrypted network through the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse. A majority of patients using the conferencing services are indigent patients who have psychological issues that contribute to their health problems, Howlett said. Although the services are not new to Variety Care, the conference program now allows access to behavioral health specialists more frequently and immediately. Howlett said Variety Care's growth plan includes several other communities beyond the three mentioned previously, such as Thomas in rural western Oklahoma. He said the organization also is considering making the services available to providers in the metro area as well, to help improve the overall efficiency of caregiver distribution around the clock.
