Teleneurology is a branch of telemedicine that offers consultations for neurological problems from a remote location via real-time, two-way audio and video communication.

With our teleneurology program, we have 24-hour, on-call access to prominent stroke and neuroscience experts through the Tele-Stroke Network at Research Medical Center, a part of HCA Midwest Health, the leading healthcare provider in the Kansas City area.

The network neurologists can review CT scans, assess and monitor a patient’s heart rate and breath sounds, observe mobility in arms and legs and check vision and hearing through a telemedicine robot. The administration of clot-busting drugs and other life-saving clinical decisions can also be made quickly between local caregivers and the tele-neurologist.
