Mayo Clinic Case Study Supports TeleConcussion Solutions

11-26-2012 9-55-39 PM

A new study published in the most recent issue of Telemedicine and E-Health supports “teleconcussion” as a viable option to assess concussed patients. Participants in the study included physicians from Mayo Clinic of Arizona, and patients living in various rural communities within Arizona. The patients were primarily high school athletes injured playing sports. The physicians conducted live video evaluations of patient symptoms to bring concussion expertise to more remote parts of Arizona.

Mayo Clinic has already implemented TeleStroke, TeleNeurology, and TeleEpilepsy programs in Arizona, making it one of the more aggressive telehealth aligned organizations in the region.

Arizona has recently passed a “concussion” law requiring a medical evaluation for any player suspected of having a concussion, prior to returning to the field.
