Company announces key consultation milestone, and leverages neurology expertise for community volunteer opportunities during Warburg Pincus Volunteer Week.
Reston, VA (PRWEB) May 10, 2016
Specialists On Call, Inc. (SOC), the country’s leading provider of clinical telemedicine services to acute care hospitals, today announced that it has now conducted over 200,000 acute and routine neurology patient consultations. The SOC neurology practice is comprised of US-trained, board-certified physicians who care for patients experiencing all acute neurologic cases, including stroke.
To commemorate American Stroke Month in May, and in conjunction with Warburg Pincus Volunteer Week (May 9-13), an annual initiative involving Warburg Pincus portfolio companies from around the world, clinical staff and volunteers from SOC will be conducting stroke education classes at senior living communities in the Washington DC-metro area. Included in the sessions will be residents of The Virginian, a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) located in Fairfax, Virginia, which provides independent living, assisted living, long-term nursing, rehabilitation, and home health care services.
“Specialists On Call launched its Neurology service line in 2006. Since that time, we have grown to a team of more than 75 board-certified neurologists working with acute care hospitals nationwide,” said Specialists On Call’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Til Jolly. “By delivering care for more than 200,000 patients, we have cultivated unrivaled experience in delivering exceptional neurology care via telemedicine. We are very fortunate to now be able to share this knowledge with the community, to help older adults become familiar with the signs of a stroke and seek care quickly to ensure better outcomes.”
SOC will showcase its entire set of telemedicine solutions at the American Telemedicine Association Annual Conference and Trade Show in Minneapolis, MN from May 14-17, 2016.
