Unique Telepsychiatry Practice Opportunity
FOREFRONT TELECARE is seeking innovative Washington psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners to participate in our fully integrated telepsychiatry + primary care service line. We, provide evidence based and compassionate telepsychiatry services to some of Washington's most influential and forward-thinking medical groups and healthcare systems. Our integrated service model involves more than just locating a behavioral health specialist in a primary care clinic - way more. We've culled the literature and identified the seven critical elements of integrated behavioral health service delivery. Then we built the capability of delivering each of them to primary care clinics that otherwise struggle to arrange patient access and/or to find appropriate behavioral health specialists. The result is a unique and, we believe, a one-of-a-kind telepsychiatry service offering. And at the center of the model are our psychiatrists and psychiatric NP's -- usually practicing from the comfort and convenience of their own homes. Our patients are at their usual primary care clinics, or at home. This is a completely turnkey practice opportunity. See if any of the following quality of work-life components appeal to you:
If you would like to consider joining our Washington practice groups for a few hours a week or more, please send a copy of your CV and letter of interest to the email address shown below. Thank you for your consideration.
