Additional company information:

Blue Sky Telehealth provides acute care on a timely basis for patients during the critical period following the onset of neurological symptoms. Combining clinical patient documentation with immediate access to medical imaging and advanced telemedicine technologies. Blue Sky Telehealth is the premier solution for enabling remote, acute neurological consults anytime, anywhere. Our Process: 1. You call Blue Sky Telehealth - A single phone call to us initiates the consultation. 2. We respond promptly - We have an average response time of three minutes in which we establish the acuity of the call. After initial contact, our neurologists initiate a video consultation. 3. Clinical information shared - CT images, tests and other critical medical data are pushed to our neurologist's desktop. 4. The attending physician and the neurologist confer - Our neurologist discusses the patient's case with the attending physician. 5. Our neurologist examines the patient - With the assistance of the 'robot', our neurologist speaks with the patient, records his or her medical history and performs an exam. 6. Recommended course of action - Based on the information gathered the neurologist recommends a course of action for the patient. Getting Started: 1. After we receive your request for more information, we will schedule a conference call with you to discuss your needs and review the services that Blue Sky Telehealth Solutions provides. 2. Once we have discussed the services you need, we will send you a customized proposal for your facility. When the contract is signed we will begin weekly conference calls with your key administration and clinical stakeholders to determine how to ingrate your chosen telehealth solution(s) into your current process. 3. With an understanding of your current call processes, we incorporate our telehealth solutions in your notification practices to ensure a seamless transition for all staff involved. We also work with your existing technology (robot) to facilitate adoption of the telehealth process, allowing you to easily train your staff. 4. After we have reviewed options and come up with a plan for implementation, we move to training on needed components and involve key staff members to ensure all stakeholders are involved in the process. 5. After successful completion of the dry run phase, we will be ready to serve your needs with our highly qualified neurologists. 6. You will be assigned a dedicated account manager to support your organization should any issues arise in the process flow.
