Dr. Steven Rudolph on Telestroke Medicine at Maimonides





“Stroke therapy is highly time-dependent and needs to be delivered rapidly,” explains Dr. Steven Rudolph, Director of the Jaffe Stroke Center at Maimonides. “Even in a city, patients can have limited access to neurological care when physicians are not on the premises at night.” In 2005, to remedy this potential problem, Maimonides implemented a telestroke program by placing a camera inside the ER to ensure on-call physicians can see patients and speak to supervising staff from a remote location utilizing telemedicine. Today, Maimonides is still the only hospital in Brooklyn that offers telestroke medicine.
