Telehealth Primer: Teleneurology

Recently, telemedicine has been used to support evolving neurology care needs across the full patient care continuum, from patient triage, to remote monitoring in the neuro-ICU, to chronic management of patients with degenerative diseases such as movement or memory disorders.

What are the emerging trends driving teleneurology adoption?

A national shortage of neurologists is coming. On top of that, neurology offerings are often not available locally, particularly in rural areas, requiring patients to travel for acute services and chronic care management. These access issues lead to delays in care, which can decrease patient satisfaction and be potentially detrimental for advanced or emergency patients.

The primer describes telehealth market trends oriented around neurology care delivery and includes a sample case study from a leading health care organization with an established teleneurology program.
