Telemedicine Brings Parkinson’s Care to “Anyone, Anywhere”

Telemedicine Brings Parkinson’s Care to “Anyone, Anywhere” | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

eMedToday's curator insight, December 4, 2013 9:15 PM

“We have an ample supply of neurologists in the country to take care of people with Parkinson’s, but because of distance, disability, and the distribution of doctors, many patients have a difficult time seeing a specialist,” said Dorsey.

Working with PatientsLikeMe, the study invited individuals with Parkinson’s who lived in the five states where Dorsey is licensed to practice medicine – California, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, and New York – to receive one free telemedicine consultation in the comfort of their own home.

The participants downloaded secure web-based video conferencing software developed by California-basedVidyo.  The technology, which is akin to Skype, only requires an Internet connected computer and a webcam.

 DURHAM —

Chris Rosati dreamt of stealing a Krispy Kreme delivery truck and driving it across town in a high-profile police chase. With glaze covering his face, he would give away doughnuts and incite smiles from complete strangers.

Rosati lived out his dream Tuesday without going to jail – he rolled up in the Krispy Kreme Cruiser, a 1960 Starliner bus that smells like a bakery, and delivered 1,000 doughnuts to Duke clinics and his old school, Durham Academy.

He doesn’t focus on the negative ................................
