Providing the Support You Need to Care for Your Stroke Patients

The USC TeleStroke and Neurological Emergency program aims to improve stroke care in the community by building a true spoke-and-hub model of care. Our program helps support the growth of your facility’s stroke center while meeting your Centers For Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Joint Commission, DNV GL and Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) certification requirements.

Our program has provided more than 5,000 consultations since 2016.
Spoke sites can reach our physicians via a one-click, HIPAA-compliant, online paging system. This direct physician-to-physician line immediately connects you to one of our neurologists.
The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for all neurological emergencies.

World-Class Physicians and State-of-the-Art Technology

All our specialized neurologists are fellowship-trained and board-certified in neurology, vascular neurology and/or neurocritical care. To expedite communication, we offer a wide range of video platform tools, and we share access to patient imaging and information directly through your secure electronic health record system.

Communities We Serve

We currently serve sites in Los Angeles County, Orange County and Santa Clara County. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Keck Medicine of USC has expanded its telehealth services, offering stroke and emergency neurological services through virtual appointments as well.
