Telebehavioral health is the deliverery of counseling services using interactive technologies, such as computer generated video and audio, between the client and the provider who are not in the same location. Sometimes referred to as internet counseling, telebehavioral health uses network and software security protocols to protect the confidentiality of client information transmitted via computer, smart phone or tablet. The video session is considered protected health information (PHI) by HIPAA and is subject to the same rules as in person counseling or therapy sessions.
