The largest provider of telemedicine services in the US is seeking to increase its capacity with respect to nationwide coverage for psychiatric care.
Board certified psychiatrists - with or without prior experience in telemedicine - are encouraged to become part of the MDLIVE network of providers with there being a particularly high degree of need in California, and elsewhere in the country.
This is an opportunity which will allow a psychiatrist to augment their current employment, either on days off or during nights and weekends. MDLIVE has designed a proliferation strategy for increasing psychiatric coverage in the MDLIVE network in a manner most convenient for psychiatrists without asking them to uproot their professional lives in order to provide needed telemedicine services.
Further, becoming part of the MDLIVE nationwide network of psychiatrists will not obligate a psychiatrist to provide any minimum amount of care; it will simply allow a psychiatrist to be aware of such need for coverage as it emerges in states where a psychiatrist holds licensure.
It is largely accepted by the very best of the mental health services world that telepsychiatry will continue to emerge as a means of practice in order to address nationwide access to care issues. In this instance, MDLIVE is providing an opportunity for a provident psychiatrist to gain either initial or further experience without disrupting their current professional lives and to do so as part of an organization which exemplifies the very best of healthcare services.
