Neurology: The Next Frontier in Telehealth.
Rapidly evolving practice that employs technology to improve access to neorologic care.
How Can Telemedicine Help?
Teleneurology is of greatest benefit to populations with restricted access to general and sub-specialty neurologic care in rural areas, those with limited mobility, and those deployed by the military.
Through the use of real-time audio-visual interaction, imaging, and store-and-forward systems, a greater proportion of neurologists are able to meet the demand for specialty care in underserved communities, decrease the response time for acute stroke assessment, and expand the collaboration between primary care physicians, neurologists, and other disciplines.
