Closing the Gap: Meeting the New Demand for Mental Healthcare in Rural America
As mental illness continues to wreak havoc on rural communities across America, especially since the COVID crisis began, how are rural healthcare providers addressing the sharp increase in demand for access to mental healthcare expertise?
Some of the leading mental health care providers are turning to technology to create a comprehensive, virtual experience for their patients – one that is reaping significant rewards for both patients and providers.
Dr. Thomas Young, founder, and chief medical officer of nView Health and Caley Berkeley, solution engineer of Azalea Health, discuss how forward-thinking healthcare providers are able to assess, diagnose, consult and monitor their patients – all remotely. Not only are they able to connect with and treat patients more efficiently, but they are also able to bill most health insurance plans for the remote assessment and visit.
Attendees will walk away with practical guidance on how to:
- Establish a completely virtual experience for patients who cannot attend an in-person consultation
- Identify new revenue sources with online diagnostic interviews and monitors
- Learn best practices for building an integrated telepsychiatry program.
