Tele-Psychiatry – Better Outcomes While Saving Money

$18 million in Medicaid savings and over 80% reduction in per patient, per day costs ($2,500 to $400) is the windfall realized by the Palmetto State Providers Network (PSPN) due to the implementation of a statewide network that facilitates telemedicine to rural areas, according to a recent report issued from the Federal Communications Commission. PSPN is one of only 50 active programs that are part of the FCC’s Rural Health Care Pilot, which is about identifying ways to use the communications infrastructure to improve the quality of health care for rural Americans.
