Telepsychiatry in Pennsylvania
1DocWay has started building its Pennsylvania telesychiatry network that includes hubs, clinics, and emergency facilities.
1DocWay has partnered with the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania to provide full continuity of care, including outpatient care, inpatient care, emergency evaluations, emergency treatment, and partial hospitalizations.
Emergency rooms at community and critical access hospitals across the state are using telepsychiatry to rapidly assess, triage and place patients in mental health crises. 1DocWay provides 24/7 ED coverage that reduces hold times, stress and boarding costs for the hospital.
1DocWay can help outpatient clinics in Pennsylvania reduce provider wait times as well as foster holistic collaboration between mental health practitioners and other caregivers. Typical settings for outpatient services include:
- Primary care clinics
- Federally Qualified Health Centers
- Community mental health centers
- Skilled nursing facilities
- Rural health clinics
- Hospital outpatient departments
1DocWay telepsychiatry enables community and critical access hospitals in Pennsylvania to connect with psychiatrists to provide inpatient assessments, evaluations, and unit medical directorship to help and/or manage psychiatric units.
