Telemedicine for Neurological Disorders
Telemedicine is a rapidly evolving area of medicine. People living with neurological disorders may lack access to care due to a variety of reasons including difficulty with mobility, living in rural areas at far distances from specialty resources, or the cost of travel and lack of access to assistance needed to travel over longer distances. Providers at Northwest Neurological are national leaders in improving access to care for patients living with neurological disorders.
During a telemedicine visit, patients directly connect with their Northwest Neurological providers through a secure internet connection from one of five local clinics. The nature of the visit is identical to a routine clinic visit that a patient would experience in person, except it occurs in a nearby location. These visits are covered by insurance and handled the same way as a regular clinic visit. To learn more about this service, speak with the staff at Northwest Neurological.
Telemedicine is currently offered at the following five sites in eastern Washington:
- Chewelah: Providence St Joseph Hospital
- Colville: Mt Carmel Hospital
- Othello: Othello Community Hospital
- Pullman: Pullman Regional Medical Center
- Newport: Newport Hospital & Health Services
