More than half of Americans have considered accessing mental health services. Hospitals and health systems are struggling to fill this behavioral health care demand. Using virtual health technology, our Telepsychiatry program expands access to care by allowing frontline clinicians to consult with board-certified psychiatrists situated remotely.
EXPANDING ACCESS TO QUALITY, COMPASSIONATE MENTAL HEALTH CARE
Telepsychiatry eases the burden on emergency department and inpatient floor staff by providing a comprehensive set of services ranging from clinical assessment and diagnosis to treatment and follow-up.
Using a secure, virtual platform, hospital and health system clinicians connect with a nationwide network of board-certified psychiatrists, behavioral health professionals and licensed social workers to treat a broad range of mental illness, from depression to addiction and psychotic disorders. The goal is to fit in seamlessly with partners’ clinical and operational workflow, guaranteeing fast response times and robust clinical documentation.
Telepsychiatry can improve patient flow, reduce the length of stay and enhance patient and provider satisfaction.
