Infographic: When time matters, Eagle Telemedicine is there

Telemedicine enables a remote physician to respond within 15 minutes to a patient suffering a stroke or seizure who's been brought into a rural hospital. They can diagnose, prescribe a thrombolytic drug (or other medication), and determine the most appropriate level of treatment, allowing the patient to remain in their community and the hospital to avoid an unnecessary transfer of an acute patient to a distant tertiary center.

Eagle teleneurologists have an impressive track record: An average response time of 3.5 minutes, and an average diagnosis and treatment time of 21.8 minutes for stroke and other acute neurology patients. It's a top-notch program that can make even the most remote hospital a center for quality neurological care.
