What Is Teleneurology?
University of Utah Health offers TeleNeurology consultation to inpatients and emergency room patients at regional hospitals throughout the Mountain West. Our services are available for emergent care (24/7 365 days a year) and scheduled visits (Monday through Friday). Via state-of-the-art telemedicine technology, TeleNeurology allows patients to receive world-class neurological care from U of U Health neurologists for acute diagnosis and treatment, without leaving their community where a neurologist may not be available.
TeleNeurology is designed to reduce unnecessary and costly patient transfers. However, in rare cases, if a patient’s care team determines that transfer is necessary for a higher level of care, our TeleNeurology program will help maintain continuity of care, and facilitate the transfer when U of U Health is the transfer destination.
Our TeleNeurology team is comprised of well-trained physicians in both general neurology and many neurological subspecialties. Our physicians remain on the cutting edge of research, innovation, and clinical care. We also provide the newest and most evidence-based treatments in the region. Our TeleNeurology specialists collaborate with providers throughout the region to determine the best course of action for each patient.
Patients across the region have access to U of U Health neurology experts through TeleNeurology. Our services are currently available throughout the Mountain West region, including Utah, Wyoming, Nevada, Colorado, Montana, and Idaho.
