Improving Access to Care through the Power of Telemedicine

A SAMHSA sponsored webinar developed under contract by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) and presented by Mental Health America (MHA) and the National Council for Behavioral Health will take place Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 2:00pm Eastern Time called Improving Access to Care through the Power of Telemedicine.

Telepsychiatry and access to medication can be a challenge for individuals and families who struggle with getting to a clinic or pharmacy. Genoa Healthcare’s pharmacy and telepsychiatry teams will discuss how integrated pharmacy and telepsychiatry services improves client outcomes, can augment programs to serve clinic needs, and improves access to care for people with mental health conditions. Our speakers will discuss:

  • how telepsychiatry can increase access to care;
  • how on-site pharmacy supports medication goals and fills gaps in care such as support for long acting injectables and immunizations;
  • how to implement curbside medication pickup and mail & delivery of medication;
  • how collaboration with pharmacist is a tool for early intervention support; and
  • how the model results in fewer admissions and emergency room visits for clients.

 

Presenters:

Samir Malik, Executive Vice President and General Manager for Genoa Telepsychiatry

Lilli R. Correll, Vice President of Payer Solutions Development for Genoa Healthcare
