Our Lady of the Angels Hospital has partnered with the Tulane Health System Stroke Team to provide an innovative Telestroke program using proven, internet technology to bring the best of stroke healthcare to you and your family 24/7. Within minutes, our exceptional Emergency Medicine doctors can connect and communicate with an experienced neurologist at Tulane Medical Center who can interview and examine the patient, discuss diagnosis and treatment options with our healthcare team, the patient and the patient’s family. 

How does Tulane Telemedicine work?

The Tulane Telemedicine program uses a mobile “robot,” which has an onboard computer, monitor, high-resolution camera and microphone.

Telemedicine, compared with telephone-only consultations, results in:

  • More accurate diagnosis
  • Better emergency decision making
  • Fewer complications
  • Positive long-term outcomes

Tulane Telemedicine uses the FDA-approved InTouch Lite robot, cutting-edge technology that features:

  • Authentic visuals of patients achieved through a pan-tilt-zoom head optimized for physician viewing.
  • Clear communication between doctors and patients enabled by directional audio, high-quality live video and media tools all designed for the clinical environment.
  • Simple interface with integrated stethoscope, privacy headset and I/O ports for peripherals.

Our Lady of the Angels Hospital has a team of professionals waiting to meet your every need. Now, the future of medicine is right here at home.
