Hectic, overbooked schedules seem to be a status quo of modern times. Between personal responsibilities, meetings, activities, and professional obligations, it’s no wonder that some things simply just get missed.
Most of the time, missing a meeting or event isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things but, for the healthcare industry, the impact of missed appointments can really add up. Reports and studies show that missed appointments cost the U.S healthcare system billions of dollars a year, but telemedicine could help solve this costly problem.
Telepsychiatry provides transformative care by providing new and convenient options for both patients and providers. Patients don’t need to miss appointments for things like taking time off of work or running into last-minute problems with childcare. Telepsychiatry offers quality care and eliminates some of these common causes of missed appointments. It’s much more convenient to fire up your computer and connect with your provider in the comfort of your office or home.
Telepsychiatry services can help healthcare facilities provide care to a wider range of patients. It also helps eliminate factors like administrative staff costs and office space from your budget which can increase profit. Providers can also schedule more visits without relying on additional staff and associated costs.
