The NCH Healthcare System has teamed up with a neurology group in Fort Myers for rapid response stroke assessments using telemedicine, a robot with live cameras streaming from a doctor's remote location. It's purpose is so patients can effectively get started on life-saving treatment at faster rate. In the past, travel time for doctors to arrive was hindering the treatment process, this helps curtail that critical response. (Corey Perrine/Staff).
