How to Implement a Successful Telebehavioral Health Program

How to Implement a Successful Telebehavioral Health Program. Redesigning Care report cover.Behavioral health disorders affect 44 million U.S. adults. Yet, fewer than half of this growing number receive the treatment they need. The stigma of mental illness, lack of access to care and inadequate reimbursement, not to mention a shortage of behavioral health professionals, are barriers to those seeking behavioral health care.

Telebehavioral health offers great potential to improve patient outcomes and experience by transforming care delivery, overcoming geographic distances and enhancing access to care, especially in rural and underserved areas.

The AHA Center for Health Innovation and the National Quality Forum have collaborated to publish a 52-page tactical playbook to implement telebehavioral health solutions that provides actionable strategies and interventions as well as links to other valuable resources and tools.

Whether your health care organization is starting a telehealth behavioral health program or strengthening an existing one, this thorough guide can be customized to help you provide better care to a greater number of patients who lack access to these services.

The playbook has been informed by experts in clinical care, technology, strategy and implementation. Download yours today!
