As Dearborn County Hospital in Lawrenceburg, Ind. marked its one-year anniversary with the UC Health Telestroke Network on Wednesday.
"We have had just over 40 patients brought to our hospital who were candidates for the stroke protocol," hospital President and CEO Roger Howard said this week. "That's 40 patients who may have been treated differently a few years ago. It is not a huge number, but one is a huge number if you're the one. The program has changed 40 lives – 40 families — in this community."
The UC Health Telestroke Network, an initiative that includes the Comprehensive Stroke Center at the UC Neuroscience Institute, enables physicians from the UC Stroke Team to "examine" stroke patients long-distance with the help of robots. UC Health launched the program in March 2012, with one robot placed in the UC Medical Center's Emergency Department and another in the Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit. By early May 2013, UC Health will have seven official telestroke affiliates, including West Chester Hospital.
