Some of our partner hospitals have an on-site neurologist (or neurologists) available, but not 24/7. Our TeleNeurology “Virtual Partnerships” present a solution to support staff and extend coverage for patients suffering from TIAs, breakthrough seizures, Parkinson’s, and other neurological conditions. Simply determine when your on-site neurologist(s) will be unavailable, and our providers will be scheduled to “beam in” and handle all consults and follow ups.
For our partner hospitals without an on-site neurologist, we offer scheduled consults. Eagle’s Scheduled Consult Model presents an affordable opportunity to provide routine consults on patients with neurologic conditions without having to recruit a full-time neurologist. Your staff schedules consults with our teleneurology providers, which will take place within 24 hours of the consult request.
For emergent neurology coverage, Eagle offers TeleStroke services.
Diversified Care Improves Hospital Revenue and Patient Care
Over the past several years, hospital revenue has fallen while facilities have also been pushed to provide higher quality, lower cost care. In many states, hospitals joined regional health networks to offer more coordinated care using shared resources. Smaller hospitals, often in rural areas, struggled to serve their communities without that support system, losing physician staff and relying on tertiary centers — possibly 100 miles away, or more — to handle patients requiring critical care or specialty surgeries.
The amount of revenue physicians generate for hospitals is considerably more than their annual salaries. Several physician specialties that generate the highest average annual net revenue at hospitals. Could TeleNeurology services add to your hospital’s ability to remain profitable?
