Overview of teleNeurology Services and Solutions

Telestroke And Emergency Neurology

Our emergency teleNeurology service covers all neurological emergencies occurring in any location in the hospital, including acute stroke. While stroke may be the most familiar reason for emergency teleNeurology, our neurologists are deeply experienced in handling all varieties of neurologic issues, both urgent and non-urgent. We provide real-time access and rapid response from an experienced and board-certified neurologist.

Inpatient Neurology

Our inpatient teleNeurology service is focused on admitted patients in the hospital setting. These cases are typically more clinically complex. Consult requests may be initiated 24/7. If requested before noon, the consult is scheduled for the same day before 5pm; otherwise it is scheduled by noon on the following day. Examples of inpatient teleNeurology consultations:

  • TIA/Stroke follow up
  • Vertigo/gait and balance issues
  • Management of seizures
  • Movement disorders such as Parkinson’s/tremors
  • Myelopathy
  • Neuropathy/neuromuscular consultation

EEG Interpretation

Routine, non-continuous EEG interpretation is available for our clients. Typically, reviews are conducted and a report provided within 24 hours of study transmission.

Why is the use of eICU use growing

There are several reasons that the use of eICU is growing:

  • Physician shortages make it hard to recruit enough intensivists to staff appropriately.
  • An aging population means that there is more demand for services.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need to protect providers so that they can avoid exposure and continue to treat patients
  • With high demand and not enough supply, physicians experience burnout trying to make up the gap.
  • The rapid acceleration of the adoption of technology, like mobile phones, means consumers expect more convenience in their healthcare.

eICU coverage can also help hospitals who have critical care physicians on staff, allowing them to offload some of their work and gain visibility into what is happening across the hospital and leverage their own skillset more broadly.
