According to the American College of Emergency Physicians, more than 80% of emergency room physicians say the mental healthcare system does not adequately serve patients in need.
To address this problem, Behavioral Healthcare Providers partnered with health systems across Minnesota to deliver telebehavioral health consultations in emergency departments. Through this program, the organization was able to:
- Reduce mental health admissions by 19%
- Decrease behavioral health provider wait times to 36 minutes
- Conduct more than 5,000 telebehavioral consults
