Improve ROI for Emergency Psychiatric Services

Psychiatric cases are a growing problem in hospital emergency departments (EDs) and often both the patient and hospital experience sub-optimal outcomes. Nationwide, the average boarding time for psychiatric patients is 8 to 34 hours. These lengthy delays translate to higher spending for your ED. Also, shorter wait times are better for patients, as long waits can exacerbate their symptoms.

Telemedicine solutions can help you: 

  • Gain access to board-certified psychiatrists
  • Shorten ED wait times
  • Improve clinical care and patient outcomes
