Telepsychiatry for Large Hospital Systems
Reducing Readmissions and Improving ED Throughput
with Sustainable Telepsychiatry Strategies
April 1, 2015
Telepsychiatry is a proven medium for increasing psychiatric capacity at single facilities and across entire health systems. This presentation will discuss strategies for implementing system-wide telepsychiatry programs that reduce ED wait times, cut psychiatric boarding, improve ED throughput, increase staff efficiency, improve psychiatric capacity and ultimately reduce readmissions throughout a system.
Rather than seeing telepsychiatry as a stopgap solution that temporarily fills a need, this webinar will focus on how to look at telepsychiatry as a long-term solution that increases efficiencies and adds value throughout a hospital system.
By increasing psychiatric capacity in the ED, inpatient units and medical or surgery floors, telepsychiatry programs can improve compliance with Joint Commission standards and improve a hospital system’s other quality metric scores. Telepsychiatry also help systems achieve the triple aim of improving consumer experiences, increasing population health and reducing costs to the system.
Based on lessons learned from the leading national telepsychiatry provider company, this webinar will discuss:
•Models of telepsychiatry that have proven effective with large hospital systems
•The direct and indirect cost benefits of telepsychiatry
•How to roll-out a system-wide approach to telepsychiatry
•How to overcome regulatory and protocol barriers that often impede telepsychiatry programs
•Best practices for planning and implementing a successful program
•Innovative applications of telepsychiatry that are engaging consumers and facilitating care outside of hospital settings
We invite you to join us for this complimentary webinar presented by Geoffrey Boyce, the Executive Director of InSight Telepsychiatry. Boyce has led the implementation of telepsychiatry programs in 23 states and worked closely with a number of health systems to design and launch successful telepsychiatry programs. InSight has over 15 years of telepsychiatry experience and its team of approximately 200 employed psychiatric prescribers work to deliver care in settings ranging from in-home to outpatient clinics to multi-states health systems and ACOs.
