Vanderbilt, Memorial University Medical Centers Create Telemedicine Programs for Stroke Patients

Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., and Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, Ga., have separately created telemedicine programs for stroke patients, according to a Business Wire news release and MUMC news release.

VUMC partnered with Specialists on Call to create a teleneurology network that will allow hospitals in the state to have immediate access to neurologists via telemedicine. The Vanderbilt Neuroscience Network will also allow hospitals to transfer patients who need stroke or cerebrovascular intervention to VUMC. 

Meanwhile, Memorial University Medical Center collaborated with Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth and Second Opinion Telemedicine Solutions to create a telestroke program designed to improve access to neurologists for stroke patients in rural areas. MUMC is currently working with Jeff Davis Hospital in Hazlehurst, Ga., and Bacon County Hospital in Alma, Ga.
