Torrey 2017 Beyond Med Management.pdf

<p>Today, outpatient psychiatric care is commonly referred</p> <p>to as “medication management” and is often delivered in</p> <p>15- to 20-minute visits by psychiatric care providers who</p> <p>receive little workflow support from technology or medical</p> <p>assistants. This Open Forum argues that this current state</p> <p>of psychiatric care delivery is a problem, comments on</p> <p>how psychiatry got here, and suggests that, through reframing</p> <p>and redesign, psychiatric professionals can improve</p> <p>care for those delivering and for those receiving this needed</p> <p>service.</p>
