JSA Health Telepsychiatry in Texas

Telepsychiatry in Texas

JSA Health Telepsychiatry opened it’s doors in Texas in November of 2007. At the time, our founder, Dr. Avrim Fishkind … had promised state officials that he could redesign the psychiatric emergency services for the entire state of Texas. Dr. Fishkind reassured state officials that telepsychiatry was the answer to the problem of access across such a large state.
However … no telepsychiatry services were available to provide 24/7 on-demand telemedicine. So Dr. Fishkind, Dr Scott Zeller and Dr. Jon Berlin stepped up and created JSA Health to answer the need.
Since 2007, JSA Health has gone on to serve over 150 institutions in Texas at over 200 locations state wide … 24 hours per day … 7 days per week … on-demand within one hour at any location. JSA has proven all the critics wrong. JSA has never missed a consult in over 10 years of service! We have developed a national and international reputation during these years for not only our provision of telepsychiatry services, but also our data collection, accountability, clinical oversight, customer service, and meeting the goals of the Triple Aim:
