Psychiatry gets a bad rep for being one of the more "technophobic" fields in clinical medicine. This negative association stems in part to the difficulty in tracking changes in mood, cognition, and certain behaviors over time. But there is a growing contingency of psychiatric clinicians who are bringing technology into this specialty to help propel standards in mental health care. Dr. Adam Kaplin, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Principle Psyciatric Consultant to the Johns Hopkins Multiple Sclerosis and Transverse Myelitis Centers of Excellence, joins Dr. Jennifer Caudle to discuss ways in which technological innovations can enhance psychiatric care and decrease stigma surrounding mental illness.
