How to Establish a Successful Hospital-Based Telepsychiatry Program

“How long will it take to set up? When can we launch it?”

These are the most common questions when jump-starting a telepsychiatry program. As telehealth adoption increases across hospitals and health systems, stakeholders should be cautious of unrealistic timelines and silver bullet solutions that don’t grasp the nature of behavioral health challenges within your community.

Clinician Perspective: Hospital-based Telepsychiatry in 2020

Posted by Regroup on Jul 28, 2020 10:21:13 AM

This year has seen remarkable changes across every element of the healthcare landscape. From the unforeseen curve ball thrown at a vulnerable U.S. healthcare system to the rapid, necessary adoption of telehealth across all care settings, 2020 is nothing like we’ve dealt with before.
With all this change comes a need to be introspective and understand how we can prepare for the days, weeks, months and years ahead. InSight + Regroup maintains partnerships with hospitals and health systems across the nation under unique circumstances to ensure access to timely psychiatric assessments.

To help give us a clearer picture of what hospitals have experienced and may continue to endure related to mental health patients, InSight + Regroup SVP & Medical Director, Dr. Mark Alter, gives his thoughts on the current hospital-based telepsychiatry landscape.

Supporting Black Voices

Posted by InSight + Regroup on Jun 5, 2020 3:59:24 PM

Over the last week racial events have triggered raw emotion across the country.

At InSight + Regroup we have zero tolerance for injustice, discrimination or racism. We take a stand for removing the structural barriers that impact Black, Indigenous and People of Color. Systemic racism exists within the healthcare system and within the communities and patient populations we serve. Black individuals are more likely to experience serious mental illness and more likely to receive inadequate treatment. We must do better.

We support Black voices and outcries against inequality. We want to play an active role in improvement.

As an organization that employs mental health professionals and serves hundreds of communities across the country, we must actively work to break down the health disparities within Black communities that make access to care inequitable.

We must do our part to learn, listen and examine our personal and systemic biases that make their way into treatment and into who has access to that mental health care.

We must examine our own operations and areas our organization is falling short.

We are asking our clinicians to acknowledge the historical, sociocultural, and individual factors that influence the care they deliver.

We are imploring our team to listen empathically to one another, to examine our personal blind spots to root out ways we maintain inequality, and to check-in on one another.

We are asking everyone to take time to learn and have assembled some clinician-recommended resources.

We advocate for a positive change in our country, and we appreciate what you do as well.

Thank you,

Geoffrey Boyce
Chief Executive Officer

Leveraging Telepsychiatry to Meet Patient Needs During COVID-19

Posted by Regroup on Mar 19, 2020 1:53:37 PM

The spread of the COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus, is upending daily life around the globe. On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared coronavirus to be a pandemic. To date, there have been over 220,000 cases worldwide, with more than 9,000 deaths reported. There are now widespread mandatory closings and travel restrictions, and many major events have been cancelled or postponed. 

In response, healthcare organizations are seeking ways to provide safe, uninterrupted care to patients while meeting new behavioral needs brought on by psychological trauma. The stresses of quarantine and anxiety about the illness can lead to serious mental health concerns, creating ripple effects that will be felt for months to come. 

By providing care virtually through telepsychiatry, organizations can respond rapidly to patients’ mental health needs and free up in-house clinicians and resources to address escalating medical needs in the wake of the outbreak. Recent legislative updates are paving the way for increased use of telepsychiatry to meet these needs as the coronavirus spreads. Here’s how your organization can effectively prepare.
