Primarily used for behavioral health exams, GPT’s prison platform facilitates multiple telemedicine encounters on a daily basis. Most of these prisons are in remote areas where providers are few. Telemedicine allows the prisons to access quality health providers located in the metro areas. The telemedicine platform also allows for the exams to take place in an environment safe to both the inmate and the provider. Over the past few years, pressure to reduce medical costs and technology improvements have made telemedicine the preferred platform for behavioral health and other scheduled follow-up exams in US prison systems. Telemedicine not only offers an efficient method of treatment delivery in prisons but also helps avoid the high cost and security risk of transporting inmates to medical facilities.
