Access to Neurologists When You Need Them
Due to the unprecedented demands on the US healthcare system from COVID-19, CMS waivers have been issued allowing hospitals to have broader access to physicians via telemedicine.
With your team of doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff on the front line working to save lives, TeleSpecialists extends our thoughts for their safety and well-being. If you need neurological coverage, TeleNeurology is an effective and immediate relief to already strained resources. Telemedicine reduces risk of physician exposure and transmission. During this crisis, TeleSpecialists is stepping up to provide additional support where needed.
Our credentialed, Board-certified neurologist responds to Stroke Alerts and other consults via telemedicine, using your native EMR. Our neurologists write alteplase orders and make the life-saving decisions, applying standardized workflows to ensure rapid and seamless care for the patient. TeleSpecialists will work with you to explore expedited service implementation.
TeleSpecialists offers general TeleNeuroHospitalist Rounding to provide follow-up consults for retained stroke patients and routine, non-emergent neurological consults for admitted new patients. Orders are updated by the neurologist and entered directly in your EMR.
STAT and Routine EEG Interpretation
In addition, TeleSpecialists provides rapid interpretation of EEG in emergent and routine settings. Rapid acquisition and interpretation of EEG through telemedicine can help to diagnose, and our neurologist can then assist with treatment. This often alleviates the burden of having a neurologist on-site to interpret EEGs for neurology cases.
Delegated Credentialing (Credentialing By Proxy)
When partnering with a hospital, TeleSpecialists understands that credentialing a group of doctors for telemedicine can put pressure on an already constrained team at the hospital. Our Credentialing team prides itself on the completeness and thoroughness of each candidate’s application. We are available and ready to assist with your hospital’s credentialing needs.
