First Telestroke-Pilot started in Italy

MEYTEC has started the first teleneurological project “Telestroke Umbria” in the Italian region Umbria. With the physicians and technical staff from the associated Italian hospital the telestroke network was established and started its first tests in June 2016. Several neurologists in Italy test telemedicine applications from different suppliers, but there was until now, no stroke network in the standard care arena. Neurology specialists from the Umbria region are interested in telemedicine solutions by MEYTEC and they will gather own experience with the fully integrated technology during the pilot. In the “Telestroke Umbria” project there were deployed new telemedicine systems VIMED® TELEDOC 4 HD+ and VIMED® DOC BASIC 3 HD+ as well as MEYTEC’s Server infrastructure.
