About Us

About us

AcuteCare Telemedicine (ACT) is the leading practice-based provider of Telemedicine services for hospitals seeking around-the-clock stroke and other urgent Neurological care. Founded in 2009, ACT allows hospitals to access highly-respected expert Neurologists and Telemedicine technologies.

As the demand for Neurologists increases and new regulations impact hospitals, there is a growing shortage of experienced physicians available to provide continuous coverage. Hospitals across the country struggle to find a solution to fill this need, and with more than one patient in the United States suffering a stroke in the time it takes to read this paragraph, it is critical to address this problem.

ACT offers cost-effective solutions that deliver complete on-call coverage, improve patient outcomes, adhere to HIPAA / HITECH requirements and establish a sustainable financial model for patient care.

ACT provides:

• Quality stroke and other Neurological emergency consultation
• Continuous, around-the-clock on-call coverage
• Hospital accreditation assistance toward Joint Commission Certification as a Primary Stroke Center
• Access to a network of experienced, Board Certified clinicians, including Stroke Center Directors, who are able to communicate clearly and understandably with patients, doctors, nurses and pharmacists
• Consistent, evidence based quality care in accord with Neurological guidelines and practice standards
• Increased hospital revenue through newly captured ER visits, related hospital admissions and improved third party reimbursement
• Security and Privacy of all confidential patient information and medical data

We partner with hospitals to execute a plan of action to achieve certification, building relationships and opportunities to engage in ongoing Telestroke and other Teleneurology services along the way.
