Mental health patients are overwhelming Emergency Departments and trends are continuing to rise. With limited Psychiatric ED staff, rising costs, and increasing wait times, it is critical to implement a solution that can effectively serve and stratify these patients. VisuWell is uniquely positioned to help hospitals optimize and leverage psychiatry provider networks that will decrease the duration of mental health patient visits and quickly provide necessary care.
ARE YOU READY TO OPTIMIZE YOUR PSYCHIATRY NETWORK?
Telepsychiatry empowers EDs to quickly assess patients, discharge with a treatment plan, or appropriately transfer to a support facility – avoiding unnecessary hospital admission costs.
By quickly serving mental health patients, ED staff can focus on traditional acute patients, increasing the speed of care and decreasing risks associated with longer wait times.
By instituting a telepsychiatry workflow EDs can reduce unnecessary hospital transfers. A psychiatrist can quickly stratify and serve patients to determine appropriate treatment.
The VisuWell platform is equipped with an open API strategy for data sharing and workflow integration with existing clinical and administrative systems. Seamless integration is both critical and necessary to a successful transition to a robust telemedicine program.
