Telepsychiatry in Louisiana
JSA Health Telepsychiatry opened it’s doors in Louisiana in 2009. It has been our privilege to assist organizations throughout the state who have had difficulty attracting psychiatrists since the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
One of our projects that we are most proud of is the HIV clinic at Lallie Kemp Regional Medical Center in Independence, Louisiana. HIV psychiatry clinics have long had difficulty staffing with psychiatrists interested in and knowledgeable about the neurological effects of HIV disease. Using telepsychiatry, JSA Health was able to find the empathic and caring psychiatrists interested in HIV related psychiatric issues and help Lallie Kemp staff their clinic.
Working with the LSU system has been richly rewarding for JSA and has further proved the efficacy of telemedicine in serving underserved areas and populations.
