Mood 24/7
Mood 24/7 was developed by HealthCentral based on technology licensed exclusively from Johns Hopkins University to help you track your daily mood. Sign up for free and pick a time of day to receive a text message. You can even share your results with doctors, family and friends in your trusted circle.
@hallicious We "misremember" our mood from day to day, so daily charting more accurate than weekly/monthly reporting. #rusticretreat #mhsm

Overcoming Rural Health Care Barriers through Innovative Wireless Health Technologies
In congressional testimony, Darrell West argued that wireless health technologies can provide quality and accessible care to rural veterans who live great distances from medical facilities, and gain budgetary efficiencies in the process. According to West, health care services and procedures based on mobile health, remote monitors, electronic medical records, social networking sites, video conferencing, and Internet-based recordkeeping can make a positive difference in people”s care.

Mood 24/7
Test if your phone can receive text messages from a short code by typing your phone number (eg, 16065551212) and clicking Send. If you don’t receive confirmation within 30 minutes, call your carrier by dialing 611 from your phone and ask to be able to receive texts from a short code.
Sites and apps offer some interesting possibilities. Look forward to more psychologists adopting them. #rusticretreat

Online Therapy Institute – Bringing Technology to the Helping Professions
First, let’s discuss Skype. Everyone wants to know- is Skype encrypted? Yes, Skype is encrypted. But, Skype is not necessarily HIPAA compliant. For U.S. practitioners who need a HIPAA compliant solution (that means the practitioner can engage in a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement with the 3rd party and that 3rd party is also HIPAA compliant) then Skype may not be a viable alternative.
There’s been a lot of media interest lately about online therapy, so this is cool to see it in practice. http://t.co/lDbtXJMZ #rusticretreat

Therapists Are “Seeing” Patients Online
She mixed herself a mojito, added a sprig of mint, put on her sunglasses and headed outside to her friend’s pool. Settling into a lounge chair, she tapped the app on her phone. Hundreds of miles away, her face popped up on her therapist’s computer monitor; he smiled back on her phone’s screen.
Now, we’re watching @drpozner use Skype for the first time and do a mock therapy session with @Hallicious #rusticretreat

FaceTime calls are encrypted; and HIPAA compliant when using proper encryption | ZDNet
Summary: Apple gear is HIPAA compliant when using WPA2 Enterprise security. It’s arguable that WPA and WPA/Personal connections are also compliant, but it’s debatable. Back in July 2010 Apple responded to a rumor that FaceTime calls were unencrypted saying that the entire FaceTime conversation stream is encrypted.
From what I understand, Skype is not considered secure enough for HIPAA. But there are other sites psychologists can use. #rusticretreat
