Telemedicine Shows Promising in Helping Brain Aneurysm Patients

Telemedicine Shows Promising in Helping Brain Aneurysm Patients | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | Scoop.it

With telemedicine permeating almost every aspect of modern healthcare, the latest signs of hope and promise for telemedicine’s utility come from within the realm of care for patients dealing with brain aneurysms.

A foundation created in memory of a 12-year-old Texas girl is now helping a New Hampshire hospital provide rapid access to neurovascular specialists for brain aneurysm patients across northern New England.

The foundation, the Missy Project, in Austin, was created in 1999 to honor Marisa “Missy” Magel, who died while at summer camp from a brain aneurysm disease her family didn’t know she had. The project recently donated $150,000 to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Center for Telehealth, which will use telemedicine to give children and adults real-time access to neurovascular specialty care.

According to a statement provided to MHW, telemedicine is seen as a great fit for many neurovascular patients because a physical examination isn’t always required.

That’s the opinion of Dr. Robert Singer, a well-respected neurosurgeon.

Typically, patients have to wait weeks to get an appointment with him after getting a scan from their doctor, he said. Telemedicine reduces patient travel and the wait time for an appointment, and gives the patients a better visit, he said.

“Many of them drive great distances for what is typically a 15-minute appointment, and then they have to return at a later time if they need a diagnostic or treatment procedure,” he said. “That 15-minute appointment can easily be conducted via the virtual aneurysm clinic.”

Patient Safety in Telemedicine | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | Scoop.it
Both the Federation of State Medical Boards and the American Medical Association have published guidelines for physicians seeing patients via telemedicine that stress patient safety, but some critics believe they are not progressive enough, even though patient safety advocates are now saying the U.S. needs a national system of accountability.
