White Paper | Delivering Compliant Care: A Guide to Telepsychiatry Law

Posted by Regroup on Apr 9, 2019 2:03:52 PM

 

"Telepsychiatry programs have been on the rise for the past several years, helping healthcare organizations address chronic psychiatrist shortages, escalating rates of substance abuse and widespread incidence of mental illness across the U.S. By enabling providers to connect with qualified clinicians from anywhere, telepsychiatry is putting mental health care within reach for the first time in many rural and underserved areas. And while these organizations are finding telepsychiatry meets the proverbial triple aim — high-quality care, better overall health outcomes
and lower costs — many are discovering that keeping up with telepsychiatry compliance is a full-time job."

MAT | How Prescribing Suboxone Can Help Solve the Opioid Crisis

Posted by Regroup on Mar 21, 2019 9:34:43 AM

 

Each day, opioids claim the lives of more than 130 people across the U.S. As this national epidemic continues to intensify, access to treatment has remained out of reach for many of the patients who need it most. While medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with medications like Suboxone is a proven method for treating opioid use disorder, there simply aren’t enough qualified providers to meet the need and the demand, particularly in rural and other underserved areas.

As healthcare facilities work to meet skyrocketing demand for MAT, a growing number are turning to telepsychiatry as an effective, cost-efficient solution. With recent changes in the law making it easier to deliver MAT via telepsychiatry, this technology-enabled approach is expanding access and saving lives in communities ravaged by the opioid crisis.

White Paper | 4 Steps for 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."

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.
