Inpatient Psychiatry Services

A stable team of in-house psychiatric hospitalists to serve your patients.

Eliminate the patchwork approach to acute mental health services.

It’s no secret that a lack of in-house specialty support is a growing issue for healthcare facilities across the country—and inpatient psychiatry is no exception. Patients with mental health needs that require hospitalization often rely on community-based clinicians for care. Unfortunately, this can result in a fragmented approach that negatively impacts the patient experience and delays needed care.

Ensure greater continuity and improve the patient experience.

TeamHealth offers a stable approach to managing acute mental health programs within hospitals or free-standing facilities. Our dedicated team of psychiatric hospitalists provides mental health consultations faster than community based models, enhancing clinical effectiveness while improving patient outcomes.

As the nation’s largest provider of hospital-based services, partnering with us on your hospital’s inpatient psychiatric needs ensures alignment with hospital goals and the implementation of operational strategies to improve quality metrics.

Our inpatient psychiatric partners benefit from:

  • Improved length of stay.
  • Reduction in short stay admissions.
  • Improved admission documentation and timely discharge summaries.
  • Achievement of preferred provider status for managed care plans.
Improve outcomes and the patient experience.

Patient diagnosis and an appropriate care plan are identified faster with an on-site physician presence.

Reduce risk with immediate psychiatrist availability.

Round-the-clock psychiatrist presence also allows for ED or inpatient consultations as needed.

Increase patient throughput and clinical efficiency.

An integrated, team-oriented approach to treatment promotes efficient transition to next site of care.
