Sector Spotlight | Value-Based Care Providers

Posted by Regroup on Feb 12, 2019 8:30:00 AM

Healthcare spending is skyrocketing in America, reaching a whopping $3.5 trillion in 2017 and projected to rise another 5.5 percent annually over the next decade. As the industry seeks to contain these costs, providers are shifting their focus from the quantity to the quality of care they deliver – and that’s where value-based care comes in.

In contrast to the traditional fee-for-service model, the value-based approach rewards providers for efficiency, as well as patient health outcomes. Reducing expensive – and sometimes avoidable – acute care episodes is integral to the success of this approach, which is why mental health is an important part of value-based care. By identifying and resolving behavioral health issues earlier, healthcare organizations can keep patients healthier – a win-win for patients and providers.

In our ongoing Sector Spotlight series, we focus on how telepsychiatry can help value-based care providers access mental health services that benefit their patients and their bottom lines.

[White Paper] 4 Steps for Rolling Out a Successful Telepsychiatry Program

Posted by Regroup on Dec 24, 2018 4:14:00 PM

 

"The U.S. is facing a nationwide shortage of psychiatric clinicians, and that shortage is expected to grow to an estimated 15,600 psychiatrists by 2025. At the same time, the growing opioid crisis, economic hardship and other factors mean patients need these services more than ever. Nearly one in five American adults is living with mental illness, which can lead to lower job productivity, physical co-morbidities and increased hospitalization risk if left untreated. It’s little wonder that psychiatrists are now No. 2 on the list of in-demand medical specializations – and telepsychiatry has emerged as an effective method to put more psychiatrists within reach of healthcare facilities."

Sector Spotlight: Federally Qualified Health Centers

Posted by Regroup on Nov 13, 2018 10:04:00 AM

In communities across the country where wealth and medical care is scarce, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) can be a critical safety net to keep the neighborhood alive and well.

[White Paper] A Guide to Maximizing Telepsychiatry Reimbursement

Posted by Regroup on Nov 1, 2018 5:02:00 PM

 

Reimbursement varies significantly by state as well as by payer, which means there are no hard and fast rules to help organizations determine if– and how much – they may be reimbursed for telepsychiatry services. While the federal Medicare program guidelines apply across the U.S., Medicaid programs are administered at the state level, which means each state can set its own criteria and telepsychiatry coverage. Each state can also determine whether private payers must offer reimbursement for telemedicine, causing significant variations in payments to clinicians and healthcare facilities.
