TeleSpecialists is proud to be a leader in TeleStroke and Emergent TeleNeurology services. Every second counts during a stroke, and an on-call TeleStroke neurologist with TeleSpecialists can be connected directly to the Emergency Department via telemedicine in an average of four minutes. Rapid reaction time and treatment can dramatically improve patient outcomes and ultimately save lives.
Our TeleStroke solution brings extensive clinical stroke experience from highly trained TeleNeurologists directly to your healthcare facility via telemedicine.
What Is TeleStroke?
TeleStroke is the process of virtually examining a suspected stroke patient over video. The goal of TeleStroke services is to quickly evaluate and treat patients to improve the hospital’s reaction time and patient’s outcome.
Time is of the essence when saving brain cells. Emergency acute stroke support with our TeleStroke services can save lives and allow for better outcomes. Hospital neurologists are at a premium, with neurology as one of the country’s most understaffed medical fields. This shortage puts stroke patients at risk of not seeing a neurologist in time. TeleSpecialists provides focused emergent neurology services, including TeleMedicine for stroke, to hospitals across the United States — anytime, anywhere.
We seamlessly integrate our TeleNeurologists with your hospital’s stroke and ED team to create a streamlined and effective TeleStroke response. TeleStroke Alert services ensure rapid assessment and treatment for EMS stroke patients. With prearrival Stroke Alert notification, ED staff can mobilize and contact TeleSpecialists so that a TeleStroke response is available almost as soon as EMS brings the patient in. This capability places a board-certified, stroke-trained neurologist on-screen at the patient’s bedside in an average of four minutes.
Patients who receive rapid triage and treatment regularly experience drastically improved outcomes and higher quality of life.
