Cincinnati-based Mercy Health expanded its partnership with InTouch Health to add virtual behavioral healthcare services at hospitals across its Northwest Ohio region.

Lighthouse Telehealth, a subsidiary of Toledo, Ohio-based Harbor, will provide the virtual psychiatric care at Mercy Health's Toledo-based hospitals, using the InTouch Virtual Care Platform. Lighthouse Telehealth entered into a physicians' service agreement with Mercy Health to provide inpatient psychiatric coverage.

"We have worked with InTouch Health over the past few years to enable telestroke services, and we look forward to expanding our work to deliver inpatient psychiatric telehealth on a secure and reliable platform," said Ateeq Haseeb, MD, chief medical informatics officer at Mercy Health-Toledo.
