Abstract

The aim of this study was to provide a psychiatric consultation to a deaf patient in a rural community via telemedicine. The patient successfully communicated with the telepsychiatrist via an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter and her psychiatric symptoms improved. This case study demonstrated the feasibility of delivering specialty medical services to a special needs population via telemedicine.
