EP’s Telepsychiatry Unit (also known as EPTU) was created out of a need within the market for qualified professionals interested in assisting in tele-psych! Telepsychiatry is believed to provide better access and higher-quality care to patients who need psychiatric care and cost savings to providers of such care. Telemedicine has been successfully integrated into psychiatric facilities reaching rural areas, prisons, and urban facilities. It has increased the volume of patients that physicians can reach and diagnose, as well as allowing them to treat patients with limitations in mobility.
As you may already be aware, telepsychiatry is a GROWING field! As the demand for telemedicine grows, as does the need for mental/behavioral health patients and professionals to connect in a similar capacity. The Emergency Services field has already demonstrated the benefits and advantages to telepsychiatry services. As more insurance companies start to reimburse for telepsychiatry treatments at the same rate as for face-to-face visits, this evolving medical field has the potential to grow exponentially!
Our unit will consist of licensed professionals: Psychiatrists, PMHNPs, RNs, LPCs, LCSWs, LMFTs, PSYDs, CACs, etc.* with direct prior experience working in mental health facilities. All participants are pre-vetted by Empowered Partnerships and will operate as contractors working for Empowered Partnerships. We do this so when a client has a need, we can select the right individuals for the project quickly and easily… and equally as important, we can advocate for and protect our employees in all employment situations. Professionals must have the ability and be open to work in a remote capacity depending on the requirements of the project (both from your home office and out of one of our client’s office locations).
All those who opt to participate in the program will be asked to complete a simple checklist verifying licensure, past mental health experience and your ability to be employed on either a part-time or full-time basis. You will tell us your schedule and availability!
