MUSC Telestroke Network
Every second counts – especially when it comes to stroke care. Our emergency department has partnered with the MUSC TeleStroke Network to provide fast, real time access to MUSC’s nationally recognized team of neurologists and stroke care specialists via real-time, telemedicine-based technology.
When a patient showing signs and symptoms of a stroke enters the emergency room, neurology specialists at MUSC can communicate with Carolina Pines’ emergency room team, examine the patient, review imaging reports, confirm a diagnosis and provide recommendations for treatment, just as if they were at the bedside. The technology uses a computer and web cam, which assists in providing a thorough examination with the most immediate and best treatment plan for the patient. This virtual network has proven to provide superior quality through better access to therapy and improved patient outcomes.
