Treating Strokes Effectively Using Cisco TelePresence

- November 10, 2009 - 6 Comments

At today’s Cisco Collaboration Partner Summit in San Francisco, CA, we heard how the use of TelePresence can make a significant difference to success levels in stroke treatment.   In an environment where time is a critical factor in diagnosing and treating stroke, getting the right clinical care to the patient quickly is paramount.  

Andrew Clarke of the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust talked to the Platform after his presentation about how Cisco TelePresence is helping to make a difference in this ‘golden hour’ after a patient presents at the hospital, and about how remote diagnosis is having an impact on both patients and hospital staff.
