Telestroke Saving Millions of Lives

Telestroke is saving the lives of millions of individuals providing fast and accurate care, which is hard to find even in emergency rooms today. “Stroke patients living in rural areas who receive care via a Telestroke network see, on average, nearly $1,500 in lower costs over their lifetime compared to stroke patients who do not receive Telestroke care”, researchers concluded in a Mayo Clinic study. Over 10 million patients are using Telestroke and other telemedicine technology devices today.
