Telemedicine and Child Neurology.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Over the past 2 decades, various telehealth technologies, in particular synchronous video teleconferencing between provider and patient, have been incorporated into the practice of neurology. The practice of child neurology is now starting to take advantage of these rapidly evolving resources. This review describes the evolution of tele-neurology, starting with adult tele-stroke services and expanding to the management of both adults and children with a variety of chronic neurologic disorders including epilepsy, headache, movement disorders, and neurodevelopmental disabilities. Resources required for the development and sustainment of a child neurology telemedicine program are discussed together with requirements for licensure, and credentialing, and the importance of educating current and future neurology practitioners in how to provide this clinical service.
