Who We Are
Psych 1 is a provider of online psychiatric assessments and treatments and is designed to enable quick and easy, cost effective access to an Australian psychiatrist. The service was designed by a psychiatrist with the aim to eliminate geographic boundaries and simplify access to specialist psychiatric services. With recent Medicare changes, it allows both rural and city patients to access a psychiatrist and claim a rebate. It is intuitive, user friendly and does not require special hardware other than a video enabled computer, laptop, phone or tablet and broadband internet connection.
What We Do
We use secure video-conferencing via the Internet to connect the patient, their GP and the specialist psychiatrist. Our service utilises cutting edge technology to facilitate encrypted and secure video connections between the patient and their doctor. This eliminates the need to travel to a capital city to see a psychiatrist, has minimal impact on time off work and associated frustration of being in a crowded waiting room. We bridge the gap in service inequality between rural and city areas. We also service Residential Aged Care Facilities and Aboriginal Medical Centres irregardless of their location. Our service is available internationally on a pay per session basis.
