JASPR Feature: Bringing specialized care to a hospital near you
Telemedicine: Bringing specialized care to a hospital near you
By Crystal Peterson, Director, Physician Recruiting and Retention, Specialists On Call, Inc., Reston, VA
A 52-year-old mother of three is brought into the emergency department of an urban hospital, displaying symptoms of a stroke. Nurses and medical staff collect patient data and medical history, the ED physician orders a CT, and asks the nurse to page the on-call neurologist for a consultation.
Fifteen minutes later, a stroke-trained neurologist consults with the ED physician and the patient’s husband. The consultation exam shows the patient suffered a stroke and is a candidate for the clot dissolving drug tPA (tissue Plasminogen Activator), which is administered to the patient. Later that evening, the patient is admitted to the hospital for recovery and follow up care. Eleven hundred miles away, the neurologist who performed the consultation finishes his shift, turns off his video conferencing unit, and turns the case over to a neurologist three states away.
New Webinar Shows You How to Use the On-Demand Tracking Tool

You will have the ability to generate reports for your administration on all of your search activity. The On-Demand Tracking Tool will allow you to export your data at any time to show how many candidates you’ve received, interviews conducted, offers made and acceptances for each of your searches.

How to Use the On-Demand Tracking Tool:
Select the On-Demand Tracking option to begin and then select "Add Search” to complete the requested data for each search you conduct throughout the year. You have the ability to edit each search so you can update them later as your search efforts progress.
