Emergency Care

Diagnosing Potential Stroke in the ER

Our emergency doctors can videoconference with a neurologist to provide expert, fast care for potential stroke victims.

Advanced Care for Diagnosing Strokes

We use a telehealth service that enables the doctor and the patient to see and talk with a neurologist via a secure videoconference line. The neurologist can get diagnostic imaging and test results from the emergency doctor immediately and can also speak directly to the patient to help diagnose a possible stroke. The neurologist and the emergency room doctor can then determine the best care plan for you.

This service is available 24/7, bringing a high level of care to Alabamans in rural areas that may not have a staff neurologist on call. This rapid access to the specialist has the potential to save lives and minimize the physical damage caused by a stroke.
