Issue Brief Shows Effectiveness of Telehealth Services in Partial Hospitalization Programs and Intensive Outpatient Programs

WASHINGTON, Feb. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association for Behavioral Healthcare (NABH) Education and Research Foundation and Manatt have released an issue brief that highlights how telehealth services effectively augment traditional partial hospitalization programs (PHP) and intensive outpatient programs (IOP).

The COVID-19 pandemic led many behavioral healthcare providers to implement telehealth services to expand existing PHPs and IOPs. To assess the effectiveness of telehealth in PHP and IOP programs, NABH members launched a study to measure the impact that telehealth services had on access and outcomes.

Results from the study show that using telehealth services improved access to care and optimized the reach of existing personnel. The initial findings from several NABH members also indicated that, relative to in-person services, telehealth delivery-of-care produced similar or better outcomes for PHP and IOP patients.

"Maintaining telehealth services coverage in PHP and IOP is essential to improving behavioral healthcare access and outcomes," said Donald Parker, board president of the NABH Education and Research Foundation and president at Hackensack Meridian Health Carrier Clinic in New Jersey. "We're grateful to our fellow NABH members who helped in this important study," he added. "And we thank the Manatt team for showing how behavioral healthcare providers incorporated telehealth into PHP and IOP programs, the lessons we've learned from this, and what policy recommendations to consider as the COVID-19 public health emergency draws to a close."

Some of the telehealth brief's key findings include:

Manatt will host a webinar to discuss the issue brief's findings on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at noon ET. Click here to learn more and to register for the free webinar.
