Can telemedicine for stroke improve treatment outcomes?
In new research presented at the 2014 AAN Annual Meeting, investigators reported that implementation of telemedicine increased tPA use in stroke patients by more than 50 percent. Smaller hospitals showed the most significant increase in tPA treatment rate. Hear about the implications of this research in a panel discussion with Neurology Today Editor-in-chief Steven P. Ringel, MD; Neurology Today Associate Editor Robert G. Holloway Jr., MD, MPH; Vladimir Hachinski, MD, professor of neurology and epidemiology at Western University in Ontario; and Jeffrey L. Saver, MD, director of stroke and vascular neurology at the University of California in Los Angeles. Read the full abstract here: http://bit.ly/telemedStroke.
