Comprehensive TeleStroke Coverage

Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. has a stroke…and access to timely care matters.

Telemedicine makes it possible for hospitals to care for patients with stroke symptoms and avoid the need to transfer them, consuming valuable time that can lead to poorer outcomes. With 24/7 access to teleNeurologists who are available within minutes, hospitals can evaluate stroke cases quickly and provide critical neurological care to patients locally.

Delivering Rapid teleStroke Care When Every Minute Matters

Access TeleCare provides real-time access and rapid response from an experienced and board-certified neurologist. TeleStroke care equips hospitals to care for patients experiencing strokes via telemedicine, including acute stroke care.

Neurology experts work with on-site teams to evaluate and treat stroke cases quickly, including a review of imaging, and recommendation for or against the administration of a clot-busting drug and whether the patient should receive endovascular treatment.
