Telemedicine Consults & Transfers

Every second counts for patients showing symptoms of stroke, brain aneurysm or other neurovascular disease. Through a high-tech telemedicine system, our neuroscience specialists are able to evaluate patients in other hospitals’ emergency rooms – in real time.

Our telemedicine system partners with several hospitals in the Philadelphia area, including Abington – Lansdale Hospital, Grand View Hospital, Phoenixville Hospital and Sacred Heart Hospital in Allentown. As a regional referral center, we also accept transfers from hospitals throughout the greater Delaware Valley.

Telemedicine Consult

Designed with secure videoconferencing technology, the telemedicine system enables our neurologists, neurointerventionalists and neurosurgeons to:
  • Consult with an emergency physician at the other hospital
  • Speak with the patient and family
  • Examine the patient
  • Review medical history and laboratory results
  • View radiology images

Together, the physicians may decide that local care is appropriate or that the patient should be transferred to Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health for more advanced treatment with our experts.

Transfer After Consult

Telemedicine consult happens quickly, so transfer can be fast if needed. Abington – Jefferson Health’s One-Call Transfer Service handles transfers rapidly, 24/7. Transferred patients may be treated with the latest technology in our Neurovascular Laboratory and cared for in our neurocritical intensive care unit (neuro-ICU).
