The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been felt in many ways, including within the behavioral healthcare community. Faced with a highly contagious illness and a directive to isolate, telepsychiatry services became an even more attractive option for delivering and receiving care than it already was before the start of the pandemic.


innovaTel is here to help.

innovaTel’s Solutions Can Help During COVID-19

Psychiatric care is a necessity, and disruptions aren’t a luxury that patients can afford. The COVID-19 pandemic illustrated the need for providers and clinics to exhibit flexibility, and the need patients have for sustained care — even if they are isolated. In addition, it’s estimated that millions of new patients, dealing with economic and emotional strife related to the pandemic, will seek treatment in the months ahead.

As a leader in the telepsychiatry space, innovaTel is prepared to help clinics and providers meet the demands of the future.
