Access Psychiatry Solutions, LLC – TELEMENTAL HEALTH COMPARISONS

Access Psychiatry Solutions, LLC

In 2008 the Center for Health IT Leadership of Partners Health Care published a literature review and computer simulation regarding telehealth technology. They calculated that if such technology were to be deployed widely in health care settings through the U.S. the result would be approximately $94 billion per year in decreased health care spending. They concluded that:

“Telehealth has great potential to improve access to care, but its adoption in routine healthcare has been slow. The lack of clarity about the value of telehealth implementations has been one reason cited for this slow adoption …The simulation predicted savings of $4.3 billion per year … Payers, providers, and policymakers should work together to remove the barriers to the adoption of telehealth so that this cost savings can be realized in the U.S. healthcare system.”

What was true for telehealth generally was and is particularly true for telepsychiatry. Behavioral health services delivered in patients’ usual health care facilities (clinics and hospitals) dramatically reduce no-show rates and improve treatment outcomes. And when behavioral health disorders are detected and treated effectively individual and family suffering is reduced, workplace productivity increases and management of chronic illness that co-exist with behavioral health disorders – and their attendant health care costs – improve dramatically.

In 2006 Access Psychiatry Solutions, LLC began mapping a service delivery model that would make integrated telepsychiatry services sustainable and available to clinics and hospitals and the patients they serve. Along the way, and from discussion with almost 200 health care agencies and facilities, Access Psychiatry Solutions, LLC learned that there is a small set of common barriers that have precluded implementation of telepsychiatry services in most facilities that would otherwise want to have them. Access Psychiatry Solutions, LLC then developed a delivery model that systematically overcomes each of those barriers.

The result is an integrated telepsychiatry service that is feasible, sustainable and easy for clinics and hospitals to implement.

 

They bring psychiatrists and other behavioral health specialists, videoconferencing endpoints, videoconferencing-specific technical support and behavioral health integration expertise and training to your door. There is no capital cost to clinics or hospitals to implement this service, and their psychiatrists become your psychiatrists.
