We all have experienced it. Quarantines, restrictions, lockdowns. The COVID-19 crisis has given rise to another silent epidemic harder to see, mental health. Though the COVID -19 accelerated the need for behavioral health support, the digital health system is struggling to adapt to the changes. Unfortunately, for small to medium-sized behavioral health practices, it is a struggle compared to larger and more established businesses able to be more resilient despite economic losses.
Greater Shift to Digitalization
For small and medium behavioral health business practices, it is clear that digitalization is no longer optional. While many opted for using a band-aid solution in Telehealth ( a standalone video or communication software ), it created a disconnected experience for management staff.
Slowly now, the priority is shifting for this business to look for a much-consolidated solution that provides a combination of Telehealth + Electronic Medical Record – EMR. It will help behavioral health businesses practice to transform how behavioral health care is delivered truly.
