Revolutionizing Neurological Care With Teleneurology
What is Teleneurology?
Neurology is just one of many fields of medicine that is taking advantage of advances in telemedicine which make it possible for doctors to see, diagnose and treat patients remotely. Using fairly simple equipment like a tv monitor or tablet combined with more powerful communication technologies, providers, including neurologists, can assess a patient whether s/he is at home, in the hospital, or in a medical clinic. With telehealth technology, remote providers can monitor patients’ blood pressure and other vitals in real time and access the health data they need to make diagnoses and treatment decisions.
