Telepsychiatry for Long Term Care Facilities

long term care patient telepsychiatry

ITP works with both residential care facilities and skilled nursing facilities.

We give the support needed to your facility and medical staff by offering psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and consultations. We reduce hospitalizations due to complications from behavioral symptoms by providing timely access to psychiatric care. Consequently, this reduces transportation costs for your facility.

Benefits of telepsychiatry:

  • Create a market advantage by offering psychiatric care enabling you to accept more difficult care cases
  • Improve patient outcomes with better behavioral health care and effective use of psychotropic medications
  • Reduce staff turnover with less behavioral health related issues in your facility

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency or need immediate assistance, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.

ITP’s services are available to more than just long term care facilities. We also partner with different provider types including emergency departments, county jails, and outpatient and mental health clinics.
