Dictum Health Launches Advanced Telestroke Module for Virtual Exam Room Platform

June 28, 2018 — Dictum Health Inc., creators of the Virtual Exam Room (VER) telehealth technology, announced the release of their Care Central advanced telestroke module. The module provides neurological images viewing capability for use with the VER to reduce door-to-needle time, improve patient outcomes and lower costs.

Underserved rural and remote hospitals are generally not staffed with an on-site neurologist, the only specialist that can assess whether to prescribe the vital lifesaving drug tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), to be administered during the critical stroke treatment window. Dictum Health’s telestroke solution reduces the time from emergency room arrival to evaluation and treatment by connecting a remote “on-call” neurologist to the local care team through a virtual exam for immediate clinical intervention.

The platform consists of Care Central’s telestroke module, picture archiving and communication system (PACS) connectivity, Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) viewer, and the VER-CLINIC Telehealth Cart. The cart is equipped with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Class II 510(k)-cleared IDM100 medical tablet. During a Virtual Exam, the remote neurologist engages with the patient and uses the remote PTZ camera controls of the VER-CLINIC cart to complete the National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS). By remotely viewing the patient’s neurological images, clinical presentation and intake information from the IDM100 — including complete vital signs, electronic stethoscope and 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) — the neurologist can provide an immediate recommendation for treatment to the on-site care team.

Dictum Health’s VER-CLINIC Telehealth Cart with Care Central cloud services, advanced stroke module and PACS/DICOM viewer provide remote neurologists with complete stroke assessment capability that meet level three stroke center requirements including pediatric populations. Care Central cloud services and electronic medical record (EMR) gateways seamlessly transfer stroke assessment information to the patient EMR/EHR as a part of patient medical history.
