How It Works

, The TeleSpecialists Advantage

TeleSpecialists can provide a high-quality and cost-effective solution to fit your organization’s individual needs.

TeleSpecialists will provide your hospital a road map to help you implement a state-of-the-art telemedicine program from the ground up, within your own system.

We begin with a strategy to build your clinical program, then build the telemedicine program within your clinical infrastructure. Our specialists can also assist in obtaining and maintaining Primary or Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification.

Our Telemedicine Systems Development Life Cycle (TSDLC) consists of four distinct phases:

Planning and Analysis

A gap analysis is conducted; TeleSpecialists reviews current processes, work flow, data and any accreditations the facility has.

Design

A steering committee is selected from the hospital staff, new tools are introduced, and the TeleSpecialists services are integrated.

Lean Transformation

A specialized medical TeleSpecialists team will arrive on-site to go through a Value Stream Mapping session, create a Standard Work Flow document and designate quality metric data.

Monitoring and Support

After services go live, a Quality Program Specialist is assigned to each hospital to monitor metrics and provide recommendations to ensure the highest level of service.

Why Telemedicine?

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges Center for Workforce Studies, there will be a shortage of 46,000 specialists over the next decade. Additionally, many smaller and rural hospitals do not have the resources to hire specialists or their existing specialists are not able to provide 24/7 access.

Improved Access

With a shortage of physicians, there are long waiting times for neurologic expertise at both inpatient and ambulatory healthcare facilities. Telemedicine technology helps improve access for patients and allows healthcare providers and facilities to expand their reach to millions of patients across the nation, in both rural and urban areas.

Cost Efficiencies

With an emphasis on value-based care, the Affordable Care Act emphasizes reducing the cost of care through increased efficiency, reduced travel times, fewer and shorter hospitalizations, and reduced readmissions. The hospital systems are also incentivized to develop programs that promote access to care in their community and do so with minimal cost.

Improved Quality

Studies have repeatedly shown that the quality of care provided by telemedicine is comparable with a traditional in-person consultation, making telemedicine a cost-effective solution to the poorly accessed health systems. It has also been shown that telemedicine provides a superior service as compared with local non-specialist emergent care available in some rural hospitals.

Patient Satisfaction

Superior patient satisfaction has been repeatedly demonstrated with telemedicine technology. The technology reduces travel time and related stress and uncertainty to the patient, waiting time for specialist consultation, and improved access to specialty and advanced care, otherwise not available.

Quality Services Beyond the Emergency Room

Our partnership to improve quality starts on day one – every facility is assigned a personal Quality Program Specialist to support Process Improvement initiatives that work with your hospital to obtain top performing results.

Additional resources include a Vice President and Director with over 35 years quality experience together.

Bottom-Line Benefits

, The TeleSpecialists Advantage

A telemedicine program though TeleSpecialists will do more than just increase the quality and access of your specialty care; it can also help grow your bottom line.

Telemedicine is a great tool to:

  • Reduce length of hospital stay
  • Reduce the number of transfers, saving transfer costs
  • Expand your specialty service lines, without a large investment in equipment or full-time physicians
  • Improve efficiency of your staff and physicians’ time
  • Increase overall patient volume
  • Increase patient satisfaction, improving likelihood of return visits for other procedures

The addition of telemedicine resources benefits the hospital’s staff and physicians as well

  • Your physicians will be more comfortable knowing they have immediate access to neurologists for consultations should they need it.
  • You relieve the “always on-call” burden of local neurologists for acute cases.
  • You will develop an elevated reputation as a progressive organization.

In addition, TeleSpecialists has a flexible pricing structure that charges hospitals only for the services that are used. We will work with facilities of every size, from Hub and Spoke to large Health Systems.
