Background: Telepsychiatry has become much more widely established due to the public health emergency posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Objective: This study aimed to discuss the telepsychiatry model adopted at UConn Health and explore the success of this model.

Methods: We conducted anonymous surveys of both psychiatry clinicians as well as patients, collecting information on their satisfaction with telepsychiatry visits.

Results: We found that telepsychiatry visits were widely accepted by both clinicians and patients, including older adults.

Conclusions: Telepsychiatry is a valuable way to increase access to care and is widely accepted by both clinicians and patients.

Conflicts of Interest: None declared.
