Telepsychiatry Inpatient Services
Medical and psychiatric illness are often intertwined. To provide the best medical care, it is often useful to have an individual’s behavioral health needs addressed while in the hospital. This allows for more comprehensive treatment and the establishment of proper follow-up care after discharge. It also allows your hospital to appropriately care for more complex psychosomatic patient presentations – such as delirium, overdoses, dementia, and substance abuse/detoxification.
- Improve care and medical outcomes
- Increase access to psychiatric specialty consultation
- Increase appropriate admissions and decrease the need for hospital transfer
- Establish appropriate mental health follow-up after discharge
We find that having psychiatric consultation available in your hospital can improve the care you can deliver to the community by increasing appropriate admissions – which allows hospital beds to generate you revenue that would otherwise have been empty and allows patients to stay close to home instead of being transferred to a distant hospital.

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>>
