According to a recent article in the journal Neurology, patients with acute stroke treated by remote-presence teleneurology services had outcomes equal to those seen in person by neurologists. The authors stated that “a total of 106 consecutive telestroke consultations in 2 years led to IV thrombolysis in 61 patients (57.5%). Half (28/57) of the thrombolysis patients with complete follow-up data had a favorable outcome and a third (17/57) had an excellent recovery [and] the patients treated with thrombolysis based on teleconsultation had similar outcomes with those treated at [the main hub hospital where patients were seen in person].”

AcuteCare Telemedicine has had similar success treating neurological emergencies including stroke. Using remote-presence technology, AcuteCare Telemedicine, fills the void of missing neurological care without any compromise in the level of expertise.
