CHI St. Joseph, Texas A&M Health expand telemedicine partnership

College Station-based Texas A&M University Health Science Center is extending its telemedicine services to medical facilities in Franklin and Hearne, both in Texas, as part of its partnership with CHI St. Joseph Health, according to Texas A&M Today.

The collaboration will increase rural patients' access to behavioral health services through Texas A&M University Health's telemedicine model. Bryan, Texas-based CHI St. Joseph Health patients will be able to connect with a Texas A&M University Health behavioral health therapist via a video-based platform or telephone.

The virtual care services are free and cover conditions including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. The expansion of services is funded by a grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.
