Telepsychiatry for Primary Care Office
Iris Telehealth is a firm believer in putting the patient first. By providing psychiatric services in the same office as patients receive their medical care, we are able to minimize long waits and maximize compliance in psychiatric assessment and treatment. Additionally, we can improve medical care and reduce long-term costs by helping to treat the social and emotional issues associated with chronic illness. Let Iris’s clinicians help you care for the “difficult patient”. In our experience, a “difficult patient” is typically a combination of a time-crunched doctor and a stressed or worried patient. We can help with both of these! We are proud to provide coordinated and comprehensive care in a setting convenient for patients and clinicians. To see if Iris is can help you meet your organization’s mental health needs – reach out to us!

We want to help people where they’re most comfortable – close to home and in a familiar setting. Iris Telehealth has experience providing outpatient telepsychiatry services in a variety of settings including community mental health centers and primary care offices.
Whether in the emergency room or on an inpatient unit, our clinicians can typically respond to a consult request in under an hour which allows for the timely assessment, treatment, and disposition of each patient. This improves care and decreases costs associated with psychiatric holds in the ER and unnecessary hospital transfers.
We are able to provide critical services in settings such as nursing homes, schools, correctional facilities, and substance abuse treatment centers. We know that logistical issues make frequent long-distance trips to the closest available clinician inconvenient, costly, and potentially dangerous. By developing a telemedicine solution for you, Iris can provide on-site mental health evaluations where and when they are needed. This allows quality care to be delivered under your roof and on your own schedule.
Iris Telehealth’s telemedicine services can be used on a locum tenens basis to fill temporary staff shortages while you search for a permanent addition to your team. With our locum tenens psychiatry, you never have to settle for a mediocre solution, or compromise the level of care you offer your clients. We connect you with a team of skilled practitioners who can provide compassionate care and a full range of psychiatric services via video conference. Learn more>>
