SOC Telemed Selected as teleNeurology Provider for Community Medical Center

July 8, 2019

 SOC Telemed (SOC), the leader in acute care telemedicine, today announces its selection by Community Medical Center to deliver teleNeurology and emergent teleStroke consult services. Community Medical Center, a leading physician-led healthcare organization and CARF-accredited stroke rehabilitation center, will use SOC’s Telemed IQ to support its efforts in completing the continuum of care in stroke treatment through the addition of acute stroke care capabilities.

“Community Medical Center is a leader in stroke rehabilitation. Providing immediate stroke care is a natural extension of service,” says Hammad Shah, CEO for SOC Telemed. “This selection enables Community Medical Center to complete the continuum of care in stroke treatment – allowing them the resources to provide patients with immediate access to stroke care, in addition to a means to rehabilitate.”

Community Medical Center now offers 24/7 neurology coverage, with tele-consults responding within minutes to provide a more reliable process in patient care.

“In rural states like Montana, it’s not uncommon to experience physician shortages, especially in a specialty field such as neurology,” notes Alex Redfern, emergency manager for Community Medical Center. “Utilizing SOC’s physicians and Telemed IQ for general neuro- and emergent stroke-consults allows us to provide better and more timely care in situations where specialty physicians may otherwise not be available. Telemedicine is bridging the gap in rural communities across the nation – it only makes sense for us to take advantage and come full circle in stroke care.”

Telemed IQ is in use today in more than 500 hospitals nationwide. The enterprise telemedicine platform is comprehensive and fully customizable, delivering efficiency, operations support, expertise and partnership needed to achieve program success – now and in the future.
