UAB Medicine has one of the largest stroke programs in the United States, which includes a telestroke initiative designed to deliver efficient and effective care to stroke patients across Alabama.

In this webinar, Dr. Toby Gropen, one of the nation’s leading stroke neurologists and the Director of UAB Medicine’s Comprehensive Stroke Center, shared his perspective on how to treat stroke patients virtually and how UAB is effectively scaling its program to create a state-wide stroke network.

Ashley McGrane, Director of Operations for UAB eMedicine, discussed the logistics of the program, including workflows, implementation processes and measurable results.

Watch the webinar to learn how UAB:

  • Established a telestroke workflow using its transfer center
  • Built relationships with external sites to deliver stroke care
  • Integrated the program with its Cerner EHR to promote provider adoption

“Working with American Well allowed us to launch Connect Care quickly, with a user interface that is easy for our patients to navigate. Support from the Online Care Group also gave us the ability to provide 24/7/365 care for patients right out of the gate, and continues to ensure our service is always available with a wait time of five minutes or less. We appreciate the support and ongoing innovation that working with American Well provides for our product.”

“American Well’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours.”

“Nemours puts patients and families at the center of everything we do, so as we started to think about providing care virtually it was absolutely essential that we still be able to deliver that type of patient and family-centered care. American Well’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours. American Well continues to be the innovative leader in the telehealth space and continues to adopt to our changing needs.”
