Telepsychiatry for Psychiatry

Telepsychiatry: More Than a Trend, A Solution for Patient's Needs and Psychiatry Shortages

Telepsychiatry improves patient experience and satisfaction in general and it’s a great solution to help people who don’t have easy access to mental health services. It also addresses the psychiatrist shortages that started in recent years in the United States.

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), “within a few years, the country will be short between 14,280 and 31,109 psychiatrists, and psychologists“. The psychiatrist workforce will continue to contract through 2024. For the time being, Telepsychiatry can be a solution to cover patient’s need to access to mental health services.

Now that people are more willing to engage with telehealth and telemedicine, this is a must-have functionality for your practice. Besides, the demand for psychiatric services is rising. “Mental health problems, such as depression and teen suicide, have been on the upswing since before the COVID-19 pandemic. About one in five U.S. adults reported having some type of mental illness prior to the pandemic”.

Andy Flanagan, CEO of Iris Telehealth says: “Technology and innovation must play a key role in meeting the high demand for care. That’s where telepsychiatry comes in”. As Flanagan explains, “Telepsychiatry offers a practical solution for more efficient distribution of clinical psychiatric resources (…) Behavioral health can be treated effectively in a remote setting because it isn’t an illness where severity and treatment are based on lab tests, biomarkers or physical examinations”.

With Psychiatry-Cloud we offer a secure and reliable virtual experience for both you and your patients. Our Telepsychiatry functionality is fully integrated into the EHR allowing you a single platform to manage virtual patient encounters.

I have been using the Psychiatry-Cloud for my psychiatric practice for nearly 4 years now. My experience first was that it is easy to use, which is significant considering my difficulty with technology. The platform flows well, easy and very quick to navigate producing accurate and complete records that turn to excellent representative reports for referral sources. The tech support has improved greatly in the last few years, very responsive, informative, accurate and with many resources.
