Telemedicine Quality and Outcomes in Stroke

  • Telestroke is one of the most successful applications of telemedicine, bridging disparities in acute stroke care by bringing experienced stroke experts to hospitals that often lack expertise in treating acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients.
  • The number and extent of telestroke networks is growing in the United States (and worldwide), indicating the need for monitoring practice quality and outcomes.
  • This scientific statement reviews the current status of quality and outcomes in telestroke networks and provides recommendations for telestroke providers and clients of these services to measure and improve performance and health outcomes.
