Forefront supplying rural patients’ needs
Supply meets your patients’ needs.
Across the country and for several decades, psychiatric resources have been decreasing while demand for them has been increasing because of enhanced governmental mental-health mandates and heightened public awareness. This has caused shortages nationwide, and the shortages have been especially severe in rural and remote areas.
Forefront has years of experience in making Telehealth work for many kinds of healthcare facilities. Often, these facilities are in rural or remote areas that do not have adequate access to behavioral specialists. We have worked with psychiatric hospitals, community hospitals, critical-access hospitals, community mental-health centers, rural health clinics, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and even county jails. We can supply an end-to-end behavioral solution including equipment, technical support, logistical support and psychiatric and psychological specialists whom we can credential into your facility or through whom we can provide services to your patient population.
Live video tele-conferencing, mobile health apps and remote patient monitoring (RPM) are examples of key technologies used in Telehealth. Clinicians are conquering distance and providing access to patients who are not able to travel by providing those patients with appointments using real-time video communication platforms. Video-conferencing technology has been utilized to provide care for inmates, military personnel and patients located in rural locations for some time.
Telehealth is increasingly becoming an important part of a U.S. medical system that focuses more on quality and integration of care and includes highly integrated care models such as patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) and accountable care organizations (ACOs).
