Ways that Neurologists benefit by Telemedicine:
+ Compensation gets a boost - Charging a convenience charge for the televisit is acceptable to most patients for eliminating the problems associated with an office visit (travel, waiting, taking time off work, etc.). Plus, they are more likely to contact you than go to the ER with non-life threatening problems if they have the ability to have a televisit. So you get the visit fee.
+ Much more convenient and better care for patients - 64% of patients expressed interest in telemedicine and 70% said they would prefer receiving a prescription via video visit vs an in-person visit. Bottom line, patients benefit and your practice does too.
+ Convenient for Neurologists - Replacing follow-up visits (normally 10-15 minutes on average) with a televisit (normally 3-5 minutes), saves you and your patients time. Patients really love the travel and wait time for an office visit, right?
4 Neurological Conditions that can be benefited by Teleneurology
Epilepsy - Telemedicine can be used to adjust medications, discuss symptom progression, and for the review of diagnostic imaging results and blood work, reducing trips to the office for epileptic patients.
Neuropathy – Telemedicine can be used to give lifestyle counseling to help limit the disease progression and for adjusting medications like antidepressants, anti-epileptics and cannabis.
Multiple sclerosis - Frequent monitoring of patients progression is essential and can be done effectively over telemedicine. Medications prescribed can have serious side-effects. Face-to-face interaction which patients desire, can be done via Telemedicine, while reviewing liver and blood tests or offering emotional counseling.
Parkinson’s disease – Telemedicine can be used to manage therapies involving the use of Levodopa or dopamine agonists to help control motor. Telemedicine can also be used by neurologists to counsel patients on dietary changes, exercise adjustments, and palliative care.
"... much of the diagnosis involves watching how the patient walks, how they move, observing the kind of tremor or involuntarily movements the patient has. You can easily do that on video. So conditions like multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease may lend themselves to that. In some neurological areas, such as headaches and most kinds of pain as well as epilepsy, the patient is usually normal and unremarkable in appearance at the time they are evaluated. Since ancient time, the evaluation has consisted most of patient’s description of what the symptoms have been at other times. There is no reason that couldn't be done by some telephonic/computerized/video means." "... an MRI to be done at a local hospital and interpreted by a tertiary specialist at a center far away. That’s another neurological area where telehealth may prove to be helpful."- Dr. Miles E. Drake M.D. (http://www.healthcare-informatics.com/article/neurology-next-frontier-telehealth)
