Psychotherapy and NeuroStar TMS

The NeuroStarTMS System fully complies with Federal HIPAA regulations. Patient data is securely stored. Access to the system is controlled by user name/password combinations. Password entry is unreadable on the display screen. Patient identification information is kept confidential and is accessible only to authorized system users. The system maintains patient records through unique identifiers.The PDMS operates on a separate personal computer, and the data that is transferred is protected by a wireless encryption program to maintain the confidentiality of patient data.

The NeuroStar TMS System is used by prescription only by or under the supervision of a licensed psychiatrist trained in the use of the NeuroStar TMS System.
The psychiatrist will provide the patient with the patient manual, “Depression Patient’s Manual for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation with the NeuroStar TMS Therapy System,” prior to treatment, to allow each patient sufficient time to review the information about the device and the procedure and discuss this information with his/her physician and family.

“Prescription” means that the attending psychiatrist has determined that the use of the NeuroStar is indicated for use in a particular patient, utilizing the FDA-cleared labeling, including benefits and risk of NeuroStar TMS Therapy, as provided in the NeuroStar User Manual. In addition to patient selection, the attending psychiatrist should oversee initial patient motor threshold determinations, treatment parameter definitions and overall TMS treatment course planning for each patient.

Our technicians here at TMS of Westchester are NeuroStar TMS System clinical professionals who are approved by the psychiatrist who prescribed treatment. The TMS of Westchester NeuroStar TMS System professionals possess clinical expertise to monitor the patient during the conduct of a TMS treatment session.
