Crisis Telepsychiatry Services
You can’t always predict when someone will need care the most. By providing crisis services, we are able to quickly assess, diagnose, triage, and treat an individual in their time of need in the least restrictive setting. By using our crisis service, you have timely access to a crisis intervention specialist who can frequently help deliver the care needed to the patient before the crisis escalates and requires an emergency room visit or inpatient hospitalization. In our experience providing crisis services, we have found a significant cost savings to the communities that have implemented this model. Contact us to learn more!

We want to help people where they’re most comfortable – close to home and in a familiar setting. Iris Telehealth has experience providing outpatient telepsychiatry services in a variety of settings including community mental health centers and primary care offices.
Whether in the emergency room or on an inpatient unit, our clinicians can typically respond to a consult request in under an hour which allows for the timely assessment, treatment, and disposition of each patient. This improves care and decreases costs associated with psychiatric holds in the ER and unnecessary hospital transfers.
We are able to provide critical services in settings such as nursing homes, schools, correctional facilities, and substance abuse treatment centers. We know that logistical issues make frequent long-distance trips to the closest available clinician inconvenient, costly, and potentially dangerous. By developing a telemedicine solution for you, Iris can provide on-site mental health evaluations where and when they are needed. This allows quality care to be delivered under your roof and on your own schedule.
Iris Telehealth’s telemedicine services can be used on a locum tenens basis to fill temporary staff shortages while you search for a permanent addition to your team. With our locum tenens psychiatry, you never have to settle for a mediocre solution, or compromise the level of care you offer your clients. We connect you with a team of skilled practitioners who can provide compassionate care and a full range of psychiatric services via video conference. Learn more>>
