Telepsychiatry for
Community Mental Health Centers

innovaTel's founders ran a community mental health center for 25 years.
They've been in your shoes and know the challenges your organization faces.

The vast majority of innovaTel’s clinic partners are community mental health centers.

No clinical setting is immune to the psychiatric shortage, however, wait times in outpatient community mental health centers are the longest. 

You interview and select clinicians to join your treatment team.

Continuity of care is critical; your patients will see the same clinician at every visit.

How Telepsychiatry Can Transform Community Mental Health Centers

With a shortage in the behavioral health workforce, community mental health centers are often challenged with not having a large enough clinical team to meet the high demand for psychiatric care. innovaTel was founded by mental health professionals working in community mental health centers looking to close this gap in care by supplementing these facilities using telepsychiatry.

The use of telepsychiatry can transform community mental health centers by empowering them to grow their team in a cost-effective way, while maintaining continuity of care and patient satisfaction. 

Shorten Wait Times

When using telepsychiatry at your facility you’re able to eliminate the wait time associated with seeing specialized providers or the time associated with clinicians traveling to and from facilities. innovaTel promises to have clinicians ready and on-time for every session, making your facility’s telepsychiatry sessions run just as smoothly as they would in person, if not smoother.

With a larger clinical team, more patients can be seen each day; helping you meet the demand for care in your area and ultimately closing that gap. In addition to prompt care, innovaTel can help connect you with psychiatrists that have sub-specialty training that may not have been readily available in your geographic location.

Reduce Clinician Turnover

innovaTel understands how disruptive it can be to your organization and your patients to lose a clinician.

That’s why with our partnership, innovaTel spends a tremendous amount of time on the front end getting to know your clinic as best as possible and then presents clinicians to you for your team to interview and choose. innovaTel does not believe in just placing clinicians.

Because of this thorough matchmaking process, innovaTel has minimal clinician turnover, with many clinicians having been with their organization for over 5 years.

Eliminate Cost & Disruption Spent on Recruitment

Hiring a telepsychiatrist can be a cost-effective way to meet your facility’s needs. Using telepsychiatry at your facility also allows you to contract for the exact coverage that you need. For example, if you only need to fill 16 hours of clinical time per week, then you only pay for 16 hours per week when you partner with innovaTel.

innovaTel also only presents to you qualified, previously vetted clinicians for you to choose based on what you are looking for, eliminating any time spent interviewing clinicians that are not a good fit for your facility. innovaTel also covers all fees associated with licensing, the DEA, malpractice, benefits, and recruitment.
