Stroke is the fifth most common cause of death in the US and the leading cause for long-term adult disability worldwide. Almost 800,000 people suffer from a stroke every year in the U.S. NeuroX’s telestroke team uses SmartClinix’s interactive videoconferencing technologies, specifically for the treatment of patients with acute stroke. NeuroX uses a remotely based stroke team with a stroke physician at a distant site networked with the remote stroke patient at an originating site. We can provide services for acute stroke patients in a variety of settings, including, but not limited to emergency departments, intensive care units, and medical and surgical floors, and also mobile stroke units which do not have access to on-site stroke physician services. NeuroX’s telestroke services are designed to augment local services that are not immediately available at a local site. Our main focus is to take care of acute stroke patients, however, our telestroke and teleneurology team also offers a wide variety of additional services from primary and secondary stroke prevention, remote patient monitoring, and stroke support groups

NeuroX’s telestroke services help with:

  1. Evidence based stroke care according to the American Heart Asociation and American Stroke Association guidelines with the best patient out comes and other quality measures
  2. Reduction in door to needle time and door to puncture time for patients who need neurointervention – “Time is brain”, every single second counts in stroke care. Every minute with a blockage of large blood vessel in the brain causing ischemic stroke there is a loss of 1.9 million neurons.
  3. Significant increase in stroke patients receiving thrombolytic therapy (IV t-PA or TNK)
  4. Reduction in length of stay in stroke patients
  5. Stroke center certification, Primary Stroke Center, Comprehensive Stroke Center, Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Center and Acute Stroke Ready Hospital
