8 Ethical Considerations for Starting a Telehealth

3 hours ago

1. Get Training and Become Competent. Before pursuing any new practice including using technology in service provision, social workers must ensure that they are competent.
2. Determine Whether Telehealth Is the Best Service Modality. Deciding to implement telehealth services should be a decision approached through the lens of the best interests of the client.
3. Ensure You Are Licensed and Adequately Insured to Provide Telehealth Services. Before beginning a telehealth practice, social workers must consult with the social work licensing board in the state they are physically practicing in, and with the state licensure board where the client is physically located when receiving services, according to standard 1.04(e), Competence.
4. Select a Secure and HIPAA-Compliant Platform. When selecting a platform for telehealth service delivery, social workers should consider the ethical guidance in standard 1.07(m), Privacy and Confidentiality, which addresses safeguards that should be taken to protect confidentiality when communicating electronically, specifically the use of encryption, firewalls, and passwords.
5. Pay Attention to Payment for Services and Billing Requirements. According to the NASW Code of Ethics, standards 1.13, Payment for Services, and 3.05, Billing, social workers should determine a “fair and reasonable” fee structure and ensure that “billing practices are accurate, and reflect the nature and extent of services provided, including who provided the services in the practice setting.”
6. Implement Technology Standards, Policy, and Procedures. Social workers who offer telehealth services should develop a telehealth policy and discuss it with clients, according to standard 1.03(e), Informed Consent.
7. Develop an Emergency Backup Plan. The Code advises social workers to “make reasonable efforts” to ensure continuity of services in the event that services are interrupted, per standard 1.15, Interruption of Services.
8. Seek Consultation as Needed. Social workers are required to practice ethically when using technology. This entails staying abreast of and adhering to licensing, legal, and other pertinent regulations and guidelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of insurance does a social worker need for telemental health?

For example, NASW Assurance Services (ASI) professional liability policy provides coverage for telemental health as long as it is an accepted practice conducted according to the social worker’s state regulations, state licensing board requirements, and HIPAA privacy standards.

Is there a code of ethics for social workers in Canada?

In Canada, social work legislation is the responsibility of the provinces/territories. To learn more about the ethical practice of social workers or to determine the current Code of Ethics adopted in your province/territory, please contact the provincial/territorial social work associations.

Are there any ethical issues with telehealth treatment?

No matter what type of illness we are treating with telehealth, we must always rely on two core ethical principles, beneficence and non-maleficence which include protecting the patient and making sure no harm is done (Pollard, Karimi, & Ficcaglia, 2017). There are a host of other ethical issues that telehealth brings up.

What do social workers need to know about technology?

These standards state that social workers who provide electronic social work services should only provide such services "after engaging in appropriate education, study, training, consultation, and supervision from people who are competent in the use of this technology to provide social work services."
