Re-Imagining Psychiatric Care

team up with innovaTel Telepsychiatry

An Essential Solution to the Psychiatric Shortage

The shortage of psychiatrists and the increasing demand for psychiatric care can make it difficult for organizations to provide care mental health care to their patients in a timely manner. We are here to help!

Studies confirm that telepsychiatry demonstrate comparable results to in-person care and in many cases, improved outcomes over the current standard of care. Telepsychiatry has also demonstrated increases in clinic efficiency, the variety of available care, increased access, provider flexibility and positive outcomes.

We partner with organizations in need of psychiatric coverage by offering contracted hours (part-time or full-time) for psychiatric clinicians; including board certified or board eligible psychiatrists, certified mental health nurse practitioners and licensed clinical social workers.

"Telepsychiatry is crucial for meeting the need for behavioral healthcare in America.

There is an overwhelming need for psychiatrists due to the shrinking workforce and increasing demand for mental healthcare.

It’s crucial that we leverage the number of active psychiatrists and telepsychiatry is able to do just that.

Telepsychiatry is the future of mental health care and innovaTel is bringing expert care to the masses through their partnership with organizations throughout America.

Thanks to innovaTel, we are able to bridge-the-gap to meet the significant need. innovaTel has the DNA to ensure patients receive the care they need in a meaningful way.”

“I have worked with InnovaTel Telepsychiatry for 4 years. I have had the pleasure of working with 3 different providers. I have found them to be excellent providers in their fields, being respectful and courteous to all patients in their approach and interactions. Their level of expertise is of the highest caliber. When I have needed patient support, I am able to use confidential communications to them and receive prompt replies for ordering medications for patients or guidance for me. We have treated several hundred patients with Innovatel physicians, and always had positive reactions from our patients. I am proud to say that I work with InnovaTel physicians, giving excellent care to those in our service area.”

“In many systems of care, the uncertainty and expense of recruitment and retention of psychiatry providers keeps executives up at night, but perhaps in no setting more so than in resource challenged community mental health centers. Innovatel basically solves that problem. Even if they have some turnover, they guarantee that they will provide the agreed upon FTE."
"innovaTel providers are professional, efficient, flexible, and strive to be team players. Not only are our customers overwhelmingly positive about telepsychiatry, at Central Minnesota Mental Health Center we could not be more pleased with the quality of care our customers receive from them and for the administrative headaches they have cured for us."
"I highly recommend them!”

We can help to bridge the psychiatric shortage and bring quality, passionate, experienced mental health clinicians to organizations that are having trouble recruiting and retaining clinicians.
