Best Patient Care Practices and Regulatory Compliance
Telehealth allows patients to easily access healthcare, particularly for behavioral health services. Research consistently indicates telehealth services are just as effective as traditional in-person therapy for many mental health conditions.
Benefits of Telehealth
Due to the ability to access teletherapy from virtually anywhere, it is a great option for busy individuals with limited availability, for those looking for ease of access to quality mental health services, and for those who may simply prefer the privacy of their own home for psychotherapy sessions.
The long-term and post-acute care populations consist of medically complex patients that require advanced staff skills to address the emotional and behavioral symptoms present in this population. In addition to this traditional patient population, nursing facilities are serving an increasingly diverse and challenging patient population including younger clients and individuals with more severe psychiatric symptoms and diagnoses.
Research has shown numerous benefits to the integration of behavioral health services in the interdisciplinary treatment of patients in long-term care environments. Positive outcomes have been found not only for the direct patients served, but the treatment staff, facility as a whole, and many other healthcare constituents. Key outcomes of appropriate psychological assessment and treatment include:
- Decreased psychiatric symptoms and emotional distress
- Improved coping skills and positive adjustment
- Improved quality of life
- Improved treatment compliance
- Improved functioning
- Improved readiness and preparedness for discharge
- Reduced falls and increased compliance with individualized mobility plans
- Reduced rehospitalizations/readmissions
- Reduction in challenging behaviors
Studies have shown that good mental health can result in better physical health and a longer, fuller life. CHE provides behavioral health services in a comprehensive, caring, and cost effective manner.
Most insurance companies cover costs of behavioral treatment and CHE accepts most insurance providers. For long-term care, Medicare and Medicaid generally pay for the costs of these services. CHE’s billing department processes all claims for professional services directly to third party payers.
