Quality of Mental Health Clinicians and Operations Drives Better Outcomes
If your organization is considering a telepsych program or has already added telepsych services, the key to long-term success is establishing and maintaining a high level of quality. By combining the right clinicians, tools and processes, healthcare organizations can improve outcomes for both their patients and their own businesses.
So how can organizations ensure they’re delivering quality care? Successful programs should enhance in-person care, not replace it, with clinicians working closely with existing care teams to treat patients. Integrating telepsychiatry with your existing services allows you to streamline operations and have greater oversight and quality control. Here are five elements your telepsych program should consist of in order to ensure the delivery of high-quality mental health care.
