About PsychMDs Collaborative Care


PsychMDs Collaborative Care is a rapid online Psychiatry consult service for rural outpatient Primary Care Providers (MD/NP/PA). We offer clarification and guidance for the care of patients with psychiatric conditions. 

Primary Care Providers may identify patients who can benefit from having a Psychiatrist review their case, and submit a consult request to PsychMDs. Upon acceptance of the consult request, a Board Certified Psychiatrist performs a comprehensive review of the patient’s records as submitted by the Primary Care provider, and provides a timely, clearly written report summarizing the case and providing personalized recommendations to help guide the treatment of the patient. Normally, PsychMDs can complete a consult within a few business days.

PsychMDs aims to expand access to Psychiatry expertise and improve the quality of mental health care in rural areas. However, PsychMDs Collaborative Care does not replace traditional psychiatric consultation with a live mental health provider. 

At this time we are accepting consult requests from rural outpatient Primary Care providers (MD/NP/PA) in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Patients from Minnesota and Wisconsin may ask their provider to submit a consult request on their behalf.

Please note we do not accept consult requests directly from patients.
