As more organizations explore telepsychiatry to build on their in-house capabilities, many are finding it can help to boost profitability as well as much-needed care access.
By taking an integrated approach to telepsychiatry, organizations can provide patients with timely access to holistic care while also realizing significant operational and financial benefits. Here’s a closer look at four areas where telepsychiatry can help your facility achieve ROI.
