The Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, a Johns Hopkins-affiliated facility that focuses on children and adolescents with brain disorders, will soon begin rendering services remotely to patients at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, Md., through a new telemedicine partnership, according to a report in The Daily Times.

Using a two-way videoconferencing system, neurodevelopment specialists at Kennedy Krieger will be able to examine a patient remotely and render a diagnosis and make treatment recommendations, according to the report.

The partnership is designed to save parents the eight-hour round trip from Berlin to Baltimore and provide necessary care closer to home. Atlantic General Hospital is the first in the nation to partner with Kennedy Krieger for telemedicine, according to the report.
