Creating a Telebehavioral Health Strategy

Telepsychiatry has made its impact on the healthcare market, but often it can be thought of as a “band aid” for the immediate psychiatry needs of an organization. It is now time to think of telepsychiatry, with its trend of increased usage across the care continuum, as a long-term strategy that can help an organization meet both its immediate needs, as well as help address and add value to many future strategic priority areas.

Through the lens of a leading telepsychiatry service provider, this presentation will discuss how organizations can integrate telehealth into their current services and future strategies to add value for consumers, providers, organizations and the greater community.

For consumers, telehealth is appealing for its convenience, potentially heightened engagement opportunities and improved access to specialty care. For providers, it can create opportunities for staff to use telehealth with their existing case load, improve work/life balance and decrease burnout. For organizations, telebehavioral health is a way to potentially increase billable hours, grow into new areas and become an innovative leader in a community. For the community, telehealth creates the opportunity to connect multiple points of the care continuum with a single, more accessible provider network.

The presentation will include examples from actual telepsychiatry programs to highlight the benefits being achieved today.
