Specialists On Call, a provider of clinical telemedicine services to hospitals across the nation, has launched emergency telepsychiatry services, initially in Florida.

The company's first client is 154-bed Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, which serves the Tampa region. The hospital has inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services. The telemedicine service will give it around-the-clock access to a board certified psychiatrist within one hour of initial contact, according to the vendor.

Other states initially targeted for telepsychiatry include Arizona, California, New Jersey, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia. The company expects to eventually expand to all states.
