Telepsychiatry for Outpatient and Community Clinics

Outpatient and Community ClinicsEffective psychiatric medication management is the cornerstone of a well functioning mental health clinic. However, many outpatient and community clinics find it difficult to recruit and retain high-quality psychiatrists.

Orbit Health Telepsychiatry solves your psychiatry staffing problems: Telepsychiatrists are made available to the clinics remotely. Telepsychiatry appointments will look and feel almost identical to in-person appointments.

Here’s how it works:

Identify a small confidential area in your clinic that has internet access, a desk, and a chair. We will place a video screen there and provide psychiatrists via high quality videoconferencing technology. We can use your existing computers or devices to stream a connection over a web-based telepsychiatry platform. Alternatively, we can provide a portable device that is dedicated to telepsychiatry and is always on. The technologies we use are specifically designed for telehealth encounters and are HIPAA compliant.

When the patient is ready to be seen, our telepsychiatrist will appear on the screen to provide expert clinical care. After the session, the telepsychiatrist will submit the clinical documentation directly into your electronic health record.
