FORT MYERS, Fla., Feb. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleSpecialists (www.tele-specialists.com) is bringing real-time expertise virtually to hospitals across the U.S. that may not have neurologists or other specialists on-site. The telemedicine Company designs clinical programs such as state-of-the-art TeleStroke programs, in which patients presented with stroke-like symptoms are assessed and treated immediately. With acute stroke expertise available virtually at the bedside, hospitals don't need to transfer stroke patients elsewhere for evaluation, and patients don't lose precious time until the administration of tPA or other critical therapy.
"Once we receive the call from a hospital, we can have a neurologist on camera evaluating a patient within minutes," said TeleSpecialists CEO Dr. Nima Mowzoon, MD MBA. "Assessing patients as quickly as possible is vital in the treatment of stroke-like symptoms, and we're passionate about making this level of care available to all."
TeleSpecialists has partnered with hospitals in states scattered across the U.S. to ensure the utmost quality of specialty care is available on demand to anyone, especially crucial in stroke cases. The Golden Hour defined as the 60 minutes following the onset of stroke symptoms has been established as the quality standard of care for rapid assessment and administration of thrombolytic medicine to establish reperfusion, recanalization and prevention of irreversible ischemic insult. Demand for stroke treatment is growing significantly - on average, every 40 seconds someone in the U.S. has a stroke - and TeleSpecialists' virtual networks have proven to provide superior care through improved access and outcomes with reduced cost. The Company is pleased to conduct TeleStroke health checks at the upcoming International Stroke Conference in Houston, Texas, from February 22 to February 24, 2017, one of its initiatives in conjunction with American Heart Month and its dedication to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease.
Founded in 2013 in Fort Myers, Florida, TeleSpecialists helps facilities build custom programs within the infrastructure of their hospitals utilizing existing EMR and Computerized Physician Order Entry and works with them on lean implementation of a first-rate telemedicine program, providing ongoing access to experienced, high-quality specialists. The growing Company is proud to have created a revolutionary solution to the expanding physician shortage dilemma and to offer expertise-on-demand to an array of hospital locations, urban and rural, hub and spoke.
TeleSpecialists provides hospitals with a road map to implement telemedicine programs from the ground up. The Company has grown out of a collaboration of multiple Board Certified physicians, neurologists, nurses and critical care providers. Over time, TeleSpecialists has continued to expand in physician workforce, service lines, and hospital endpoints, with a primary focus of quality patient care and customer service. Its comprehensive service guarantees 24/7/365 emergent and non-emergent consultations, while allowing the flexibility for local physicians to cover their own services with its on demand assistance. TeleSpecialists is committed to providing superior, state-of-the-art customized patient care "Anytime, Anywhere".
