Dictum Health and Complete Telehealth Solutions Partner to Bring Telepsychiatry Services to Communities Struggling With Substance Abuse
OAKLAND, Calif., March 26, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Dictum Health, Inc. – innovators in telehealth's Virtual Exam Room (VER) technology that brings the entire medical team to the point of care and Complete Telehealth Solutions (CTS), a Charlotte, NC based company- announced today a partnership to help address the crisis of rampant opioid and substance abuse, exacerbated by the shortage of behavioral health physicians in rural, under-served areas.
The combination of the expertise of CTS’ psychiatric physicians along with Dictum Health’s fully integrated telehealth platform brings a much-needed solution that integrates psychological care with biometric results from virtual exams. This collaboration enables physicians to make a more comprehensive evaluation and potential treatment.
"CTS brings full program design and implementation for services beyond basic behavioral health to include substance abuse treatment, PTSD, patient assessment, progress mapping, education, training, and access to specialty providers," said Josh Botbol, President of CTS. “With Dictum Health’s technology, we can now expand clinical care to those who need it most.”
Using Dictum Health’s IDM100 medical tablet with Virtual Exam Room (VER) technology, CTS physicians remotely connect to patients using video conferencing and simultaneous viewing of vital signs, cardiopulmonary data, and medical images for immediate assessment and clinical decisions.
“Our telehealth platform addresses critically important care gaps by enabling physician groups to treat patients with both psychiatric and clinical needs,” said Mory Ejabat, CEO of Dictum Health. “This partnership with the telepsychiatry team at CTS is a perfect example of bringing clinical care to vulnerable communities.”
With this partnership, communities now have increased the capability to address a range of challenging health issues including unmet behavioral health needs, surging opioid addition, substance abuse, and a shortage of specialty physicians.
This integrated solution is ideal for providers of all types including in-house physicians or therapists, small rural hospitals, community health centers, behavioral health clinics, post-acute care facilities, memory care units, and correctional facilities.
