Bridging the Care Gap in Michigan with Telepsychiatry

Like many states across the United States, Michigan is suffering from a shortage of mental and behavioral health clinicians. Due to the lack of access to experienced providers, health care organizations are often unable to meet patient demands. To bridge the gap in care, many facilities have adopted the use of telepsychiatry.

Telepsychiatry is a care model in which clinicians provide mental and behavioral health care remotely through HIPAA-compliant video conferencing technology. Treatment via telepsychiatry may include a range of services, such as medication management, counseling, psychiatric evaluations, consultations, and others. Patients can access care remotely from licensed psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and licensed clinical social workers in a variety of settings. Additionally, health care organizations benefit from the opportunity to offer expanded access to specialized psychiatric services to the patients they serve.

Telepsychiatry is equivalent to in-person care regarding patient satisfaction, quality of care, diagnostic accuracy, and effectiveness, making this service model a viable solution for your Michigan health care facility.

Michigan Mental Health Statistics

According to Mental Health America, which compares access to care and the prevalence of mental illness among all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Michigan ranks 17 overall based on the prevalence of mental illness compared to the rates of access to care. This data illustrates the existing behavioral health care gap in the state of Michigan.

Along the same lines, research from the American Academy of Children and Adolescent Psychiatry shows that there are only 12 child and adolescent psychiatrists (CAPs) per 100,000 children below the age of 18 in Michigan, which means there are only 257 CAPs serving the state’s 2,177,800+ children.

The discrepancy between the number of adult and youth patients seeking mental and behavioral health care and the number of licensed clinicians in Michigan is alarming and leads to higher wait times as well as a lack of care opportunities for patients. Unfortunately, due to these longer wait times and the lack of clinician availability, many patients go without behavioral and mental health care treatment.

What Our Michigan Partners Say About innovaTel

“As a result of our hybrid approach to care, we have seen a notable reduction in no-shows. If a patient prefers to receive care at home, we arrange for that. However, that option is not clinically appropriate for every patient, so the hybrid model allows us to see patients in-person, too. We believe patient choice is the future.”

Walt Hill, CEO High Plains Mental Health Center
