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
