Build a sustainable telepsychiatry program that your peers will want to emulate
We’ll provide the clinicians and telehealth expertise to help you care for the whole patient under one roof, as well as improve patient outcomes AND your bottom line.
Holistic care and collaboration
We’ll provide the psychiatrists and telehealth expertise to give you and your PCP team a holistic solution for patients struggling with mental illness. You will receive a dedicated Clinical Operations Manager and enjoy peace of mind knowing our team is ready to help your staff 24/7 with everything from paperwork to patient workflows.
Joint Commission accredited
As the recognized global leader in healthcare accreditation, we are committed to providing our clinics with only the highest quality behavioral health services.
Chronic care and substance abuse management
PCPs do their best to treat chronic mental health and substance abuse issues, but it is time-consuming and stressful to care for complex mental illness. When a specialist is part of the care plan, PCPs have more time to focus on physical health needs, and patient outcomes are improved.
You pay a flat hourly rate per scheduled hour of your provider’s time. We manage all the costs associated with recruiting, supporting, supervising, and retaining the best doctors so you can just focus on clinical care. Truly simple!
Centered on clinical and business harmony
Good clinical sense doesn’t have to come at the expense of good financial sense. In fact, we have found that when we give patients the right care at the right time, the economic benefits closely follow. Our goal is to help you make this possible in your clinic.
Physician-owned and operated
We are the only telepsychiatry company of this size and scope that is physician-owned and operated. We are not driven by big business; our passion is providing quality patient care. Everything we do is patient-focused and clinically driven.
You shouldn’t have to face your community’s mental health crisis all on your own
As a Community Health Center, your organization encounters:
- Increasing numbers of patients with mental illness and substance abuse issues.
- Tight budgets to care for the members of your community with limited access to quality healthcare.
- Burnout of PCP’s doing their best to treat complex mental illness without the help of a specialist.
- Individuals decompensating and requiring emergency treatment or psychiatric hospitalization.
You recognize the benefits of integrating psychiatry and medicine to provide optimal care to your clients—but why does it have to be so challenging to implement?
With an Iris psychiatrist working on a recurring weekly schedule, your clients will receive the specialized treatment they need, and your PCPs will be able to focus more on physical needs. You’ll also enjoy the support of a dedicated Clinical Operations expert, medical staff coordinator, and 24/7 IT team. The availability of these specialty services will allow your organization to rise to the top as a leader among CHCs in providing holistic care.
How it works
Just like having your own full or part-time provider, your Iris provider works consistent days of the week and hours of the day. Once you partner with Iris, the complete timeline to get clinical services started usually takes 4-16 weeks, depending on your clinic’s onboarding process. We work directly with your HR, credentialing, and IT teams to onboard your Iris provider, and you don’t pay for anything until the services successfully go live. Here’s what to expect after we get an agreement in place:
We help you identify the number of hours per week of telepsychiatry time your clinic needs. We also take the time to understand how your schedule works, appointment times for intakes and follow-ups, as well as your clinic’s prescribing and practice philosophies.
Choose your provider
Using this unique information, we identify best-fit candidates from our top 3% of vetted providers who are ready to meet you. Once you decide on a provider you like, we help your team get him/her fully credentialed in your clinic and paneled with your payers.
State & clinical credentialing
Once you decide on a provider you like, we help your team get him/her fully credentialed in your clinic and paneled with your payers.
EMR & video conferencing Setup
We ensure you have the video conferencing software you need, and that your Iris provider is set up to document directly in your EMR. We’ll also coordinate a test-run to make sure your front office staff and our provider are fully in sync before the big day.
You extend more quality care to more patients, and your staff is less stressed — definitely deserving of a round of applause!
