How We Started

innovaTel was founded by, and is owned and operated by, clinicians. With more than 30 years of behavioral healthcare experience, innovaTel’s founders have a unique understanding of the challenges and triumphs that come with providing psychiatric care to patients in need. innovaTel’s founders ran a community mental health center for 25 years, and the unique challenges they faced there, led them to start this company.

It is those clinical roots that anchor innovaTel every day in its mission to improve access to psychiatric care. Because improved access improves outcomes.

What is Telepsychiatry?

Telepsychiatry is a form of telehealth, which is a model that utilizes video conferencing to deliver care from a provider to a patient. Telepsychiatry involves the delivery of a range of services, including psychiatric evaluations, therapy, medication management, patient education and consultations with other providers in need of mental health expertise.

Telepsychiatry offers convenient and accessible care for those in need of mental health services. The demand for telepsychiatry has increased in recent years, particularly throughout 2020, and its application offers flexibility for providers and organizations, as well as patients.

Telehealth Seeing Rapid Adoption

Hybrid model helps meet needs

“Telehealth is here to stay, and organizations are rapidly implementing a hybrid model of healthcare delivery. innovaTel’s support for community behavioral health organizations through development of its hybrid model makes it easier for clinicians to meet local needs and support recovery. Making people and communities healthier is their passion and ours.”

Chuck Ingoglia, President and CEO, National Council for Behavioral Health

We’re transforming access
to care, for your benefit.

innovaTel connects organizations with highly qualified psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners and licensed clinical social workers.

Qualified providers

We get to know your clinical needs and present only qualified providers for your team to interview and choose. Then they become part of your clinical team.

Integrated with your organization

The providers become credentialed with your payers, document concurrently in your EHR and work in your telehealth platform of choice.

Integrated with workflows

The provider you choose holds a set weekly schedule with your organization and follows the same workflow in your systems, while connecting virtually.

Virtual care for patients

Your patients can receive their care from your organization or remotely, no matter where they are located.

Dedicated providers

We do not provide locums. We offer long-term team members who carry a caseload as if they were on-site, providing continuity of care for patients.

Engaged providers

Our providers attend treatment team meetings and keep a virtual “Open Door” policy throughout the day, offering maximum availability for both patients and your team.
