In the area of behavioral healthcare, the problem is simple …
There are far more patients in need of care than there are psychiatrists to deliver the care. In fact, per a Weill Cornell Medical study, over 55% of the counties in the United States do not have a psychiatrist, creating a ripple effect across the healthcare continuum.
- 80% of 1500 emergency department physicians surveyed believe their health systems are not providing optimal care to the behavioral population
- 70% of behavioral health patients visiting the emergency departments waited over 10 hours to see a psychiatrist
- 60% of emergency department physicians surveyed believe the increase in behavioral health patients is having a negative impact on the overall delivery of emergency medicine
- The number of psychiatric visits increased over 55% over the period of 2002 through 2011, far outpacing the growth of non-psychiatric visits
