Forefront Telecare provides virtual behavioral health for medical-surgical and intensive care units with professional psychiatric coverage for behavioral health consultations. With Forefront’s virtual behavioral health platform, you can provide psychiatric consultations with same day and next day scheduled appointments. Forefront works within your EMR to document and deploy behavioral health services in close collaboration with your care teams. We expand behavioral health access to meet your care teams growing mental health needs with efficient, high-quality care delivery.
How It Works
Identify Patient Need
Patient identified for need of behavioral health consultation by hospital medical team
Schedule BH Consultation
Hospital staff schedules same day or next day behavioral health consultation with Forefront clinician using Forefront web portal. Forefront clinician receives booking notification, logs into Hospital EMR and reviews chart, then joins the telehealth session.
Hospital RN brings telepsych cart to the patient. Forefront PMHNP conducts virtual behavioral health consultation with the patient, reviews diagnoses, and evaluates appropriateness of medication regiment.
Forefront PMHNP documents patient disposition in your EMR system including any medication recommendations. Forefront clinician codes and signs-off on case. By integrating our clinician into your EMR and workflows, Forefront operates as a true extension of your care team.
Follow-up or Discharge
Forefront clinician will perform any follow-ups as needed and can write scripts directly into EMR if inpatient placement is required.

We have been working with Forefront at our geriatric psych units in AR and OK and the thing that sets Forefront apart as a great partner is that whenever there are issues that arise from clinical to personalities, I know that I have someone at all levels of the organization who will respond quickly to get a problem resolved with a positive attitude to get everything back on track. Excellent partner for our business.
