Dr.. Hossam Mahmoud of Regroup and Luke Raymond of OSF Healthcare with the iPoster from their presentation.
What a great show, thanks Nashville!
I think it's important for every healthcare organization to have a copy of Regroup and OSF Health System’s case study that examines the effectiveness of a telepsychiatry program that combines direct care with consultation services. You can download it here:
OSF HealthCare Combines Direct-to-Patient and eConsult Telepsychiatry to Improve Rural Care Access
- Asynchronous and synchronous eConsults allowed for more appropriate referrals to a behavioral health specialists.
- Introducing telepsychiatry in an outpatient setting decreased wait times from 6 months to 6 weeks, which represents a 75% reduction in wait time.
- For patients who require in-person psychiatry, the availability of telepsychiatry reduced wait time from 6 months to 3 months.
