Managed TeleNeurology Services
The field of neurological medicine is struggling to keep up with the patient load. Burnout for Neurologists is the second-highest among medical specialties. The stress from the demand of a high patient load can be alleviated with a well-managed TeleNeurology team in place to supplement in-person care. Both physicians and patients are happier when healthcare services are administered quickly, financial burdens are lower, and stroke-program metrics are improved.
Emergent TeleNeurology Services
TeleSpecialists has emerged as a leader in Emergent TeleStroke and TeleNeurology services. A stroke patient needs emergency services immediately. While a neurologist may be elsewhere delaying patient care, a TeleSpecialists’ TeleNeurologist can be bed side, on screen using videoconferencing technology, in an average of five minutes. This quick reaction time can help improve patient outcome and saves lives. With their extensive clinical stroke experience, a TeleSpecialists TeleNeurologist’s interaction with patients is much the same as it is with an in-person physician.
Technology-Based Care-First Model
TeleSpecialists was founded and is lead by a group of neurologists. Our entire company focus is providing care to the patient as quickly and efficiently as possible. All TeleSpecialists neurologists are board-certified, fellowship-trained, and have clinical stroke experience. We are neither a technology company nor a “doc in a box”. We are a group of passionate medical professionals dedicated to quality patient interactions and metrics. Each of our hospitals receive a dedicated Quality Program Specialist (QPS) to work hand-in-hand with a hospital liaison (usually a Stroke Coordinator) to provide continued process improvement efforts, metric goals and case reviews.
Our team strives to remain on the cutting edge of telemedicine. We are constantly evolving by:
- Requiring the continuing education of our physicians and QPS team.
- Following American Heart Association guidelines.
- Discussing and following current best practices in stroke care.
- Constantly creating tools to help hospitals and physicians assess, diagnose, and treat stroke patients faster.
While some telemedicine companies require the use of proprietary software to gain access to their doctors, TeleSpecialists is technology vendor-neutral. We have worked successfully with most major cart, video platform, and EMR systems. However, our broad experience with many technology platforms has been distilled into best practices and minimum specifications to drive operational efficiency. If the minimum specifications are in place, your hospital will have the option to use your existing cart and video platform with no specific software or carts to purchase from us or install. If your team is just starting out, we are happy to advise your team regarding technology selection.
