An opinion piece that calls for new ways to give health care workers real-time insights into the needs of psychiatric patients. Also the need to consider better ways to “triage” psychiatric patients to more appropriate caregivers after they’re admitted to the emergency room. The piece states that the better able we are to match patients with the appropriate resources outside of the emergency department, the better off our health system and our patients will be.
