C68 - Cerebrovascular Disease IV: Telestroke

Event Time: Sunday May 5, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Cerebrovascular Disease and Interventional Neurology, Neurohospitalist
Director(s): Eric Anderson MD, PhD
Description: This course will provide a structured education towards the practical incorporation of telestroke into practice. Through case studies presented by physicians already using specific aspects of remote care technology in practice, we will cover the evidence for and clinical applicability of telestroke, telestroke across the care continuum, implementation, economics of telestroke, hospital contracting, and reimbursement/financial models. At the conclusion of this program, attendees are invited to "continue the conversation" as it relates to coding by engaging in small group conversation with the director and faculty. This program complements Cerebrovascular Disease I: Prevention, Cerebrovascular Disease II: Update on Guidance-based Diagnosis and Management of Hemorrhagic Stroke, and Cerebrovascular Disease II: Update on Neuroimaging Modalities and Endovascular Therapies for Acute Ischemic Stroke, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants will understand the scope of technology employed in telestroke across the continuum, the economics that drive stroke care through telemedicine, as well as the concerns and limitations for the appropriate practice of remote stroke care.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Patient Care, Practice-based Learning and Improvement, Systems-based Practice
