On-Demand, Board-Certified Psychiatrists with Acute Care Expertise

Our telepsychiatry solutions enable hospitals and health systems to appropriately and promptly treat acute behavioral health patients that present to their facility.

Focused on treating patients with dignity and respect, our services complement existing in-house psychiatry services and include on-demand evaluations, risk assessments, diagnoses, and treatment planning.

With our pay-per-consult or block-scheduling model, our solution allows hospitals and health systems to have a customized approach that meets their needs.
