Video Mental Health Assessment
West Hills Hospital uses interactive, secure video web conferencing technology to assess patients who, due to distance, are not able to access quality behavioral health services. This technology allows the patient, provider and intake specialist to work together to achieve the best outcome for the patient.
West Hills Hospital conducts video mental health risk assessments with rural hospital emergency rooms, mental health clinics and juvenile probation. West Hills Hospital’s ability to reach out to rural areas and assist community hospitals in these economically hard times is a vital element for the future of behavioral health in northern Nevada.
The objectives of our telemedicine assessment program are to:
- Increase access to care in rural areas
- Improve timeliness to diagnosis and treatment planning
- Improve quality of care
- Support the continued education and retention of rural providers
If you do not currently have telemedicine in your facility or office and are interested in knowing more about the program, please contact our Business Development Department at 775-789-4269 for more information.
