Innovators in Video Conferencing Based Programs, GCI Expands Telemedicine Facilitation Efforts Helping to Improve Health Care and Reduce Cost through Hub and Spoke Model

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 28, 2009 -- GCI ConnectMD, innovators of the largest secure medical network in the Pacific Northwest connecting over 200 clinics, hospitals, and medical organizations, have partnered with Swedish Medical Center to enable components of the "virtual" bedside neurological evaluations for patients in hospitals throughout Washington State. The Swedish Acute TeleStroke Program bolsters remote hospitals' stroke support services through 24/7 access to Swedish's nationally-recognized stroke team experts via real-time, telemedicine-based technology.

"GCI ConnectMD helps improve medical outcomes by strengthening access to and quality of health care through reliable and affordable telemedicine services," said Steve Constantine, Director of GCI Medical and Video Services. "In this case, we are helping Swedish's Acute TeleStroke Program realize the maximum potential by closing the gap on those who have had to sacrifice urgent stroke diagnosis and treatment due to geographical distance and those who reap the benefits of living in urban areas with close proximity to stroke specialists within the time sensitive protocol for stroke care."

Through GCIConnect MDs secure medical network, a link between the contracted remote emergency rooms and the comprehensive team of stroke team neurologists based at the Swedish/Cherry Hill campus in Seattle is completed, providing the infrastructure for the Swedish Stroke Team to view the brain images for Telestroke cases, a vital component of an acute Telestroke encounter.

"Even in non-life-threatening situations, the technological connections provided by GCI ConnectMD are crucial," said Tammy Cress, RN MSN FAHA, Direc
