Telestroke Care for Rural Patients is Cost-Effective

Bart Demaerschalk, M.D., professor of Neurology, director of Mayo Clinic Telestroke Program, discusses how using two way audio-video telemedicine to deliver stroke care, also known as telestroke, is cost-effective for rural hospitals that do not have an around-the-clock neurologist, or stroke expert, on staff. Dr. Demaerschalk is also a co-author of the telestroke cost effectiveness study.
