The Sevaro Difference
Providing More Than JUST A Consult
Disregard your familiarity with teleneurology. We have increased the expectations and set the bar high by:
- Drastically improving response times.
- Utilizing only vascular neurologists and teleneurocritical care providers to provide elite expertise.
- Using data automation and transparency to access opportunities and overall health of your program.
- Credentialing only a small group of providers so you can build trust, and establish interpersonal communication.
- Producing timely documentation directly into your EMR with no faxing or PDF’s
- Participating in and guiding the full patient journey to include patient and caregiver virtual support groups.
- Keeping things simple – if you own hardware (carts) we can use those, if you need recommendations we can point you in the right direction.
Sevaro Teleneurology Benefits for Hospitals
Sevaro Teleneurology has the power to give every hospital:
Full Focus on all things Neuro
Managed Teleneurology Services
At Sevaro, we’re expanding teleneurology into virtually every area of neurological care. Here are just a few of the services we can provide remotely.
With Sevaro, you gain access to fellowship-trained neurologists 24 hours a day. Patients treated with emergency neurology consults can receive thrombolytic therapy faster and suffer fewer debilitating consequences from their strokes.
Teleneurohospitalist and Teleneurocritical Care
Our physicians can round on your patients virtually, working with your on-site staff to provide seamless, integrated support.
Your patients always have access to a neurologist who specializes in their specific condition.
EEG Reads and Diagnostics
When you need fast and accurate results, you can trust Sevaro’s remote diagnostic team.
We can help with EEG, long-term monitoring and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM).
What Is Teleneurology and How Can It Help Patients?
Teleneurology is the technical term for neurological consultations or exams performed remotely via teleconferencing. This evolving branch of telemedicine can supplement or replace in-person neurological care and reduce wait times for patients.
One of the earliest forms of teleneurology was telestroke care. When it comes to a stroke, starting treatment quickly is critical to reducing the chance of long-term patient disability. But many regional or rural hospitals lack on-site neurologists. By teleconferencing with qualified neurologists, doctors and teams at distant hospitals can arrive at a diagnosis and deliver clot-dissolving therapies sooner. Telestroke care has revolutionized the field, improving patient outcomes and reducing the need for patient transfers, which can be risky, costly and inconvenient.
With teleneurology services, these benefits can be experienced by patients with a wide variety of neurological conditions — not just strokes. Hospitals rely on Sevaro to help patients with epilepsy, movement disorders, encephalopathy, remote EEG readings, interpretation of images, teleneurohospitalist rounding and many other diagnoses.
Potential Uses for Teleneurology Services
Rural Clinics & Hospitals
Remote facilities are severely understaffed when it comes to neurologists, leaving about a third of Americans at least an hour away from a primary stroke center. Access to telestroke services makes it easier to treat patients immediately.
With Sevaro, you can provide all acute and non acute neurological services in your hospital:
- Emergent neurological needs
- Inpatient neurological needs
- Outpatient teleneurology
Sevaro’s boarded, seasoned TeleNeurologists are available 7 days a week to round on patients suffering from non-emergent neurologic disorders.
Teleneurology can be equally appealing for facilities in large metro areas that may still have trouble recruiting top-tier talent. With teleneurology, any facility can gain instant access to experienced, fellowship-trained neurologists.
Mitigating Physical Burnout
Sevaro reduces physician burnout by reducing the need for near-constant on-call hours during overnights and weekends. When staff physicians experience a higher quality of life, you can retain and recruit talent more easily.
