Increase billable services.
By offering specialized mental health services, you are able to increase the breadth of care that your facility can offer. For hospitals, this can allow for an increase in appropriate admissions and utilization of hospital beds. For mental health centers, primary care offices, or other specialized facilities, it can allow for additional billable services to be rendered. Our clinicians are trained in appropriately billing the correct level of care delivered in a service and capturing their treatment effectively in their documentation. Telemedicine also offers specialized billing codes, which help generate additional revenue to cover the cost of service. It is great news that doing the right thing for your patients can also be fiscally rewarding for your organization!
Minimize costly expenditures.
The burden of untreated mental illness is felt everywhere – and this likely includes your facility’s budget. In community mental health centers, untreated mental illness is associated with much higher utilization of costly and restrictive interventions such as intensive services, residential treatment, and inpatient hospitalization. In emergency rooms, the high rate of psychiatric bed holds is both a patient care and fiscal crisis that frequently makes the front-page news. In hospitals, lack of access to psychiatric services leads to costly transfers and unutilized hospital beds. Our clinicians have been part of a large statewide government sponsored study and the preliminary data shows significant cost savings and better health outcomes for rural communities implementing telehealth services.
