Dr. Arun Sherma Describes a TeleNeurology Consultation & Working as a TeleNeurologist

TeleNeurology consultation is a service provided to hospitals that lack a neurologist or do not have neurology coverage at night, on weekends and during holidays. In this video, Dr. Sherma explains why he works in telemedicine and his experience providing patient care during a TeleNeurology Consultation.

“There is not enough of us to provide care for every patient for every hospital in the country,” says Dr. Sherma, Neurologist and Neurology Telemedicine Provider. “With this kind of service I am available for your hospital system at anytime, when you need it. This saves cost. As you don’t have to transfer patients. I’m available at any time so patient care improves.”

Hear Dr. Sherma answer a variety of questions about neurology teleconsultation, including:

  • What training did you receive from Eagle Telemedicine?
  • How long did it take to become a telemedicine provider?
  • Was it difficult to transition to TeleNeurology?
  • Do you see different types of patients as a TeleNeurology physician?
  • How do you diagnose a patient using telemedicine? How long does it take to diagnose a patient?

Neurology Teleconsultation Improves Door-to-Needle Time for Stroke Patients

HSHS St. Nicholas turns to Eagle for telemedicine to implement a TeleStroke program that will improve patient access to specialist care and provide work-life balance for onsite staff. In this case study, we review how neurology telemedicine can improve care and the financial outlook for hospitals across the county.

HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital is a 185-bed nonprofit community hospital associated with the Eastern Wisconsin Division of Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS). Located in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, the hospital treated its first patient in 1890.

Why Physicians Work Telemedicine Neurologist Jobs

In too many small community and inner-city hospitals, the burden is serious as they often cannot afford (or attract) a full-time neurologist. Patients must be transferred to a tertiary hospital many miles away, at least an hour’s drive. When “time is brain,” this situation is dire for community residents.

That’s exactly where TeleNeurology consultations  — and TeleNeurologists — can shine, bringing their expertise to positively impact these communities.

“With this service, patients can receive very timely treatment, which is especially critical with stroke patients,” says Leslie Reynolds, MD, Eagle’s Medical Director of TeleNeurology and a practicing TeleNeurologist. “We’re providing tertiary-level care, just as they would receive in a large city hospital, delivered in their community hospital.”

Eagle’s TeleNeurologists also provide outpatient consults, so patients can have a telehealth visit from home. “Otherwise, these patients would have to drive one to two hours to see a neurologist,” she says. “This improves their quality of life significantly and provides them with expert neurological care.”
