InTouch Health Launches New Stroke Care Solution

InTouch Technologies, doing business as InTouch Health, has launched its new product feature, StrokeRespond, to extend the functionality of its remote presence robotic technology for stroke experts.

InTouch's StrokeRespond is part of an initiative to develop telestroke networks to enhance stroke care. In addition to the development of this new feature for the stroke community, InTouch Health is also partnering with leaders in the healthcare industry to deliver a complete telestroke solution.

The first of those corporate partnerships to be announced is collaboration with Neurostar Solutions to bring a clinical image management application to specialists who will now be able to have convenient access to the patient imaging information needed for stroke diagnosis and treatment.

With the launch of StrokeRespond, stroke experts will now have timely and seamless one-stop access to the information needed to render efficient and informed care decisions for stroke patients. StrokeRespond is an enhancement to the Remote Presence platform and has been designed specifically to support the expert physician's acute stroke management workflow.

Yulun Wang, chairman and CEO of InTouch Technologies, said: "We are pleased to announce a total stroke solution that will help deliver expert stroke care to the population regardless of time and geographical space barriers. StrokeRespond and Remote Presence have the potential to truly impact and revolutionize the delivery of stroke care."
