InTouch Health Launches New Telestroke Platform

InTouch Technologies Inc. offers StrokeRESPOND to extend the functionality of its telemedicine, Remote Presence robotic technology for stroke experts.

The company’s stroke solution is part of a focused initiative to develop telestroke networks to enhance stroke care. Stroke is a leading application for Remote Presence. Remote Presence (RP-7) systems have already been deployed in stroke networks around the country, with results including improved geographical reach of stroke specialists and more timely delivery of appropriate stroke care. These networks have also resulted in enhanced stroke education and awareness throughout the community, further improving stroke care and patient outcomes.

StrokeRESPOND gives stroke experts timely and seamless one-stop access to the information needed to render efficient and informed care decisions for stroke patients. StrokeRESPOND is an enhancement to the Remote Presence platform and has been designed specifically to support the expert physician’s acute stroke management workflow. Data elements relevant to the management of the stroke patient can be entered into a secure Web site as they are captured by the ED staff and accessed immediately by the consulting stroke expert directly through the RP-7 system. StrokeRESPOND enhances process flexibility and rapid clinical decision-making.

Remote Presence combines the power of robotics, wireless, and the Internet to enable hospitals and physicians to bring the care to a patient anywhere at anytime. Capabilities include two-way audiovisual communication, mobility at both ends, and a software architecture which ensures reliable and robust connections from anywhere with Internet access. This enables a physician to remotely “beam” in immediately to the patient’s side to render care.
