Hospitals/Health Systems

Client


Regroup services many rural and critical access hospitals across the United States who serve diverse populations, including the Geriatric IOP services.

Challenge


Many Geriatric IOP programs are providing services to some of the most vulnerable patients in their community, but have difficulty finding Geriatric-trained psychiatrists who have experience with rural and substance abuse issues.

Our Approach


Regroup matched a highly trained Geriatric psychiatrist for 8 hours per week of assessment, medication management and treatment plan and review. The psychiatrist collaborates closely with the social work and nursing team on site, charts remotely into their medical record, and participates in team rounds and consultation as well as consult on treatment plans.

Positive Outcomes

- High patient and on-site staff satisfaction
- High-quality care is accessible to high risk patients in rural area
- Seamles integration of the RegroupConnect™ platform


Primary Care

Client


Regroup partners with many primary care clinics, including a rapidly-growing network of risk-bearing primary care clinics across the Midwest. Our partner is focused on caring for the Medicaid Advantage population - a group of patients that are highly in need of psychiatry and full spectrum mental health services. Our partner takes an innovative and patient-centered approach to care, and partners with Regroup for high-quality, efficient and collaborative care for their most at-risk patients.

Challenge


There is a shortage of psychiatrists across the Midwest, in both rural and urban counties. Finding psychiatrists with experience with complex geriatric populations with comorbid health issues and challenges related poverty is difficult. Providing cost effective and high quality psychiatric and therapeutic care across multiple sites is a challenge that many large organizations face that Regroup can partner to solve.

Our Approach


We integrated a team of psychiatrists and social workers into the existing primary care workflows. This ensured immediate access to mental health appointments or immediate consultation between the primary care and Regroup teams to provide a high level of team coordination of care and quality.

Positive Outcomes


- Reduced inpatient admissions and ED visits
- Increased adherence to MH treatment
- Seamless coordinated patient experience
- Improved efficiency for management of complex patients

Client


Regroup has partnered with community mental health centers from the beginning. Community mental health centers serve an integral role in providing access to mental health services for at-risk community members. One of Regroups community mental health partners is a Chicago-based Community Mental Health centers with 7 clinic locations.

Challenge


Cook County has a shortage of psychiatrists and many community mental health centers have a need to 8-24 hours a week of psychiatry services and cannot support a full-time physician. Our partner was facing the threat of closing psychiatric services to child and adolescents and being forced to refer vulnerable patients to local hospitals for care.

Our Approach


Regroup matched a team of adult & child and adolescent psychiatrists who provide care across multiple facilities. The psychiatrists participate in weekly patient/team consultations, chart remotely in the medical record, and have become close members of the team.
