JUNE 13, 2014 – ATLANTA, GA – AcuteCare Telemedicine (ACT), the leading practice-based provider of telemedicine services for hospitals seeking around-the-clock stroke and other urgent neurological care, is proud to announce the addition of telemedicine services at Emory Johns Creek Hospital (EJCH). EJCH is a 110-bed hospital featuring some of the most advanced medical technologies available and serves the city of Johns Creek, Ga., and the surrounding communities.

ACT’s superior emergency teleneurology care will supplement EJCH’s generous menu of medical services, board-certified emergency physicians, hospitalists, cardiologists, and neurologists, advanced imaging capabilities and intensive care.  Dr. Keith Sanders, COO of ACT and Medical Director of the Stroke Center at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital says, “We look forward to working with the excellent medical staff at Emory Johns Creek. This is the third metropolitan Atlanta hospital and the fifth in Georgia where ACT provides its quality-driven brand of practice-based, teleneurology services. Our new partnership will support the multidisciplinary team of stroke treatment experts at Emory Johns Creek’s CertifiedPrimary Stroke Center by offering 24/7/365, high-quality remote neurological assessment.”

Approximately 795,000 people in the U.S. experience a new or recurrent stroke each year, making stroke the third leading cause of death in the U.S. and theleading cause of serious, long-term disability. With timely access to specialty neurological consultations via telemedicine, patients may avoid the debilitating effects of stroke and other neurological emergencies that occur due to late diagnosis or delayed administration of “clot-busting” drugs. As telemedicine continues to become part of the mainstream lexicon of healthcare, ACT will expand its reach to ensure the best possible care for patients at its partner hospitals.
