ISC 2024 | Current and future value of telestroke networks

Amanda Jagolino-Cole, MD, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Houston, TX, comments on the value of telestroke as a tool in stroke medicine. Telestroke has become an integral aspect of stroke care, particularly in rural and community settings. Implementing a telestroke network is able to significantly increase the use of thrombolysis and thrombectomy and improve the appropriateness of patient transfers. Coordination of care between local providers, telestroke phyisicans, and accepting physicians can facilitate faster transfer, enhancing geographic access. Dr Jagolino-Cole comments on potential future avenues for telestroke networks, to further integrate into the communities they are serving and to improve education. This interview took place during the International Stroke Conference 2024 in Phoenix, AZ.
