Get patients the support they need with Amwell’s
acute behavioral health solution.
Health systems can close gaps in care to deliver timely treatment
With virtual care delivery, health systems can:
Address psychiatric shortages
60% of U.S. counties have no practicing psychiatrists, greatly affecting health systems’ ability to see and treat patients.1
Increase ED throughput
Psychiatric patients experience significantly longer waiting and boarding times than other patients in the ED, lowering ED throughput for all.2
Avoid costly transfers
In the absence of a psychiatrist on site, some EDs must ultimately transfer patients to other hospitals for treatment, costing them money and affecting the timeliness of care delivery.
Amwell’s Acute Behavioral Health solution can help you overcome these barriers and provide high‑quality, acute virtual behavioral health care.Discover How
