First Look: TeleSpecialists Touts Partnership Milestone

mHealthWatch learned ahead of the weekend that TeleSpecialists — a company focused on bringing real-time expertise virtually to hospitals across the U.S. — is now servicing over 100 hospitals nationally in 18 states.

Founded in 2014 as a telemedicine company, TeleSpecialists helps facilities “build custom TeleStroke and TeleNeurology programs within the infrastructure of their hospitals utilizing existing EMR and Computerized Physician Order Entry.” The objective? To drive lean implementation of a first-rate telemedicine program and provide ongoing access to experienced, high-quality specialists.

“We’re proud to be growing our relationships, and with over 3,500 consults per month, we’re confident we’re making a difference in our communities and patients’ lives,” said CEO Dr. Nima Mowzoon.

The company tells us that it has also been at the forefront of exciting technical advancements. Using a cutting-edge telemedicine platform, ambulance crews can now access expert TeleSpecialists neurologists, who can see potential stroke patients en route to the hospital.

“Once we receive the call, we can have a neurologist on screen, or in this case a tablet, evaluating a patient within minutes. Now that we have access to patients in ambulances, this critical evaluation period of those experiencing stroke-like symptoms can take place even faster,” said Dr. Amanda Avila, Chief Medical Officer of TeleSpecialists.
