TeleStroke Services

With our protocols in place, a TeleNeurologist can be there at minute zero.

TeleSpecialists was founded on the principles of lean management and a focus on developing protocols to provide seamless acute neurology response. During implementation, we identify and coach your team of TeleStroke program stakeholders, which may consist of representatives from EMS, ED nursing leadership, Laboratory, Pharmacy, Radiology, Rapid Response, Staff Neurologists, and Stroke Coordinators. Together, we build a state-of-the-art TeleStroke program within your hospital’s infrastructure, with our neurologists responding to Stroke Alerts and other STAT neurology consults.

During a TeleStroke consult, we provide much more than just a stroke patient recommendation. Using your native EMR and Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE), our credentialed neurologists write alteplase orders and make the life-saving decisions.

In addition, TeleSpecialists provides rapid interpretation of EEG in emergent and acute settings. Rapid acquisition and interpretation of EEG can help to exclude the possibility of non-convulsive status epilepticus, which our TeleNeurologist can then assist with treatment.

Access emergent stroke care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Looking to become a certified Stroke Center? We can help! By earning your Stroke Center certification, your facility can increase patient volumes presenting with stroke brought by EMS, increase your facility’s stroke-related DRGs and improve Case Mix Index (CMI).
