How to Alleviate ED Boarding: Implementing a Successful Telepsychiatry Program

Individuals with mental health complaints account for 7% - 10% of emergency department (ED) visits.  These individuals are often “boarded” in the ED while waiting for an inpatient mental health bed, with the national average being a 7-hour wait following the decision to admit. Registration is open for an educational webinar based on lessons learned from a leading telepsychiatry service provider. The presentation will examine the ways in which telepsychiatry can transform care delivery in the ED and the tactics used to implement and maintain successful programs.

WHN News panel:  
Is the workers’ comp. system working? 

Whether lawmakers should reform the state’s workers’ compensation program is shaping up to be a top legislative issue this fall. Business and labor groups contend that treatments are too expensive and see a fee schedule as a solution. Provider groups tell a different story. They say costs per claim are below the national average, while patient satisfaction rates remain high and workers return to the job faster than other states.

Learn more about the latest legislative proposal, including new efforts to combat opioid abuse, at a Wisconsin Health News panel, Tuesday Nov. 7 in Madison.
