Telepsychiatry in the medical home: your primary care office

TELEPSYCHIATRY AND TELEMEDICINE FOR TODAY’S HEALTHCARE MARKET

The most effective mental health care delivery comes when primary care physicians and psychiatrists work together.

70%

 of patients receive mental health care via their PCP

6:1

PCPs see a return of up to $6 for every $1 invested in BHI

50%

reduction in time to treatment target in the collaborative care model

In just 1 hour a week, our telepsychiatrists manage treatment of up to 25 patients.

By including case consultation in addition to face-to-face visits, our psychiatrists are able to affect the care of many more patients, therefore dramatically increasing access to mental health care. Over a decade of research in Behavioral Health Integration has shown collaborative care increases access to mental health care. New Medicare codes provide more opportunities for reimbursement to PCPs for collaborative psychiatric services, ultimately improving your practice’s bottom line.
