Torrey 2017 Beyond Med Management.pdf

Today, outpatient psychiatric care is commonly referred

to as “medication management” and is often delivered in

15- to 20-minute visits by psychiatric care providers who

receive little workflow support from technology or medical

assistants. This Open Forum argues that this current state

of psychiatric care delivery is a problem, comments on

how psychiatry got here, and suggests that, through reframing

and redesign, psychiatric professionals can improve

care for those delivering and for those receiving this needed

service.
