As InSight celebrates its 20th year of providing telepsychiatry services, we remain committed to our mission to improve access to quality behavioral health care. Over the past two decades, InSight has played a leading role in helping to shape the field, define the standard of care and advocate for improved regulations.
We’ve experienced exciting times of growth and advancement and made it through some growing pains along the way. Today, we remain singularly focused on our goal to transform access to care. The shortage of specialists coupled with rising awareness of and demand for behavioral health care services, underscores the importance of our mission and drives us to continue to find new and innovative ways to increase access and improve care delivery for underserved populations.
The InSight Team feels a sense of pride as we consider how mainstream the use of telemedicine has become, and how many lives have been impacted by the explosive growth of telepsychiatry. As telepsychiatry continues to become more widely accepted and used across the continuum of care, InSight will continue to lead the way in innovation, seeking novel solutions and applications of technology to expand access to care.
In the not too distant future, we will likely see tremendous advancements that leverage technology to engage, identify, diagnose, treat, and improve outcomes of patients with behavioral health disorders. InSight is uniquely positioned to harness these technical advancements because of the people and the experiences that have led us to where we are today.
The milestones we have reached, the barriers we have overcome, and the accomplishments we have realized over the past 20 years are truly incredible. As we look ahead, we will continue to reimagine and revolutionize behavioral health and set the standard for telepsychiatry care in 2020 and beyond.
