MARLTON, NJ – InSight Telepsychiatry, the leading national telepsychiatry service provider organization with a mission to transform access to quality behavioral health care through innovative applications of technology, is expanding its services to the southwest.
InSight has two decades of experience with telepsychiatry, and serves hundreds of organizations of a variety of different settings and populations across the country.
With on-demand services InSight is able to offer around the clock access to psychiatric assessment and consultation. Its scheduled services model offers blocks of time with a consistent telepsychiatry provider to conduct assessments, do medication management and serve caseloads of consumers just as an onsite provider would do. InSight’s connected services work to bring telepsychiatry to new settings across the care continuum through unique programs that leverage technology and provider capacity. And its Inpathy, direct-to-consumer services brings psychiatry and mental health care directly into individuals’ homes and other private settings. With these models, InSight is uniquely positioned to offer scalable and consistent telepsychiatry services in settings across the continuum of care.
InSight has an overall Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 53 and is seen as a telepsychiatry industry leader. InSight recently gained endorsement from the Hospital Association of Southern California and the Hospital Council of Northern and Central California. The endorsement allows InSight to help member hospitals assist psychiatric patients in the ED and other care settings. InSight is also endorsed by the Montana Hospital Association, Washington Hospital Association, North Carolina Hospital Association and the Florida Hospital Association.
In the midst of rapid change in the telepsychiatry market, InSight continues to provide consistent service and set industry trends.
There are only about 28,000 psychiatrists in the U.S. and that number is rapidly declining since those practicing are aging. Three in five psychiatrists that currently practice are 55 years of age or older so telepsychiatry is seen as a tool for expanding psychiatric care into regions that have shortages.
“Telepsychiatry can help the southwest get the most out of a scarce resource,” says InSight Chief Executive Officer Geoffrey Boyce. “We are excited to expand our services into this new region so that we can help more individuals get timely access to psychiatry and mental health care
