Atlanta Based AcuteCare Telemedicine Marks Two Year Anniversary

AcuteCare Telemedicine (ACT), a leading provider in teleneurology services, reports significant growth despite the dynamic changes in the healthcare industry. The partners at ACT started the business to fill a growing need for 24/7 neurology coverage.   The 4 Board Certified partners, all highly respected and expert neurologists, have shown consistent growth since October 2009.

“The company was founded as Georgia Teleneurology,” commented Dr. Keith Sanders, Partner, ACT. “We rebranded the company in 2011 to align with our mission, vision, and value to offer 24/7 high quality emergency neurological care to facilities nationwide.

ACT’s unique model positions them as a high quality, low-cost provider of teleneurology services to contracted medical facilities. ACT not only contributes to the treatment of acute stroke patients, but also positive revenue growth for the medical facility.  The group’s initial contract led to the successful treatment of many acute stroke victims coordinated with a 261% increase in the contracted facility’s stroke admissions as it gained Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center certification, growing revenue for both ACT and the facility.

ACT marks the anniversary by adding 2 new contracts and announces a partnership with Georgia Partnership for Telehealth (GPT), which will aid in expansion of services to remote areas in its home state where patients have extremely limited access to emergency neurological care.

“With a lot of hard work and diligence, our efforts are being noticed by the industry,” says Lisa Johnston M.D., Partner, ACT. “We continue to practice neurology full time while dedicating ourselves to the expansion of ACT.  We are passionate about what we do which is evident in the success we have achieved in 2 years.”
