TeleNeurology & Telemedicine Services

Neurological conditions are serious matters and should be addressed immediately. With TeleNeurology, patients can receive medical attention at a moment’s notice via teleconferencing. We are physician-owned and physician-led to provide the best possible care. Our emergent and non-emergent services are available to hospitals across the United States.

What is TeleNeurology?

TeleNeurology is the technical term used for a neurological consultation or exam performed remotely via teleconferencing. This evolving branch of telemedicine services supplements in-person neurological care and helps reduce wait times for neurological patients.

Our TeleNeurology Services

We offer several TeleNeurology services that we are proud of. From our TeleStroke program to TeleNeuroHospitalist Rounding, we can increase your hospital’s efficiency. Our most used TeleNeurology services include:


We designed our TeleStroke program to virtually examine a suspected stroke patient over video. Time is of the essence when it comes to a stroke. TeleStroke improves hospital reaction times and — ultimately — the patient’s outcome.

TeleNeuroHospitalist Rounding

Our TeleNeuroHospitalist Rounding services provides follow-up consults for neurological patients in your hospital’s inpatient setting. This rounding can also cover routine, non-emergent neurological consults for admitted new patients.


Our TelePsychiatrists work alongside your facility’s team to provide psychiatric assessments, create treatment plans, and offer next-level care recommendations.


By partnering with us for your EEG reads, you will have access to experienced neurologists to analyze and interpret EEGs, helping your staff to manage internal capacity and achieve consistent EEG turnaround times.

Additional Support

We are dedicated to ensuring our services are the most efficient and effective they can be, which is why we created the following processes:

Delegated Credentialing

In an effort to reduce turnaround time, drive consistent processing quality, and expedite service implementations, we created a streamlined and efficient Delegated Credentialing process for the provision of our telemedicine services.

Quality Support

We provide on-site training and consultation, best practices, and assign a Quality Program Specialists (QPS) at every facility to support process improvement initiatives that work with your hospital to obtain optimal results

How TeleSpecialists Can Help

Telemedicine allows a neurologist to examine or consult with an acute patient at a moment’s notice or easily access a neurologist in a neurohospitalist setting.

Because much of a neurological consult can be done with the help of a trained nurse and using visual tests or by reading and interpreting scans, hospitals and medical facilities can take advantage of TeleNeurology to serve their patients better. We focus on:

  • Emergent neurology, civering head-based conditions like strokes and seizures.
  • Non-emergent neurology including rounding and follow-up exams in a hospital setting.
  • EEG reading and interpretation.

TeleNeurology benefits hospitals and patients:

  • We allow a board-certified neurologist to be bedside with a patient within an average of 3 minutes of a call
  • Our neurologists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Our standardized workflow — developed with the help of the hospital team — allows TeleSpecialists to provide the same high-quality care at 2 a.m. or 2 p.m.
  • TeleNeurology allows physicians to concentrate on hospital services and other necessary hands-on work

Our TeleNeurology Services Are Well-Managed

The field of neurological medicine needs help 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.

We Are Leaders in Emergent TeleNeurology Services

We have emerged as a leader in Emergent TeleStroke and TeleNeurology services. A patient experiencing a stroke needs emergent neurology services immediately. While a neurologist may be preoccupied elsewhere, a TeleNeurologist can be bedside, on-screen using videoconferencing technology, in an average of three minutes.

With their extensive clinical stroke experience, our TeleNeurologists’ interaction with patients is much the same as with an in-person physician. However, their quick reaction time sets them apart, improving patient outcomes and saving lives.

We Utilize a Technology-Based Care-First Model

We are founded and led by a group of neurologists, and we prioritize our entire company focus on being centered on timely, quality patient care. All our neurologists are board-certified, fellowship-trained, and have clinical stroke experience.

We are passionate medical professionals dedicated to quality patient interactions and metrics. Each of our hospitals receives a dedicated Quality Program Specialist (QPS) to work hand-in-hand with a hospital liaison – usually a Stroke Coordinator – to provide continuous 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.

Our Advanced Telemedicine Technologies Are Vendor-Neutral

While some telemedicine companies require the use of proprietary software to gain access to their doctors, we are technology vendor-neutral. To make this possible, we have coordinated with the best telemedicine cart, video, and EMR systems to create the best practices and minimum requirements for efficiency.

Our team of expert TeleNeurologists are available via telemedicine cart to provide a number of essential neurological services. Discover how our Telemedicine carts can improve continuity of care in your facility today. Feel free to download more information about our program or share it with a friend.

Being vendor-neutral means that our technology is available to be installed across all platforms — no additional purchases or installations are required. However, if your team is just starting out, we are happy to advise your team regarding technology selection and implementation.
