Stroke Consultation Software

We have developed a secure,web-based stroke consultation software program that is used by other TAP hospitals and telestroke networks. The encrypted, password-protected software application serves as a robust medical record system which accurately documents critical information on each clinical telemedicine interaction, including patient demographics, medical history, exam findings, lab values, and care recommendations. The application contains embedded decision support tools (e.g. reminders, warnings, algorithms, and calculators) which assist the telemedicine consultant in making the correct diagnosis and treatment decisions.
