Prospective reliability of the STRokE DOC Wireless/Site Independent Telemedicine System.

Abstract

The authors evaluated a site-independent telemedicine system. Telemedicine may be limited by the need for fixed connectivity. Wireless and site-independent technologies eliminate this limitation. Twenty-five stroke patients underwent evaluations by remote and bedside examiners. Ten of 15 (67%) NIH Stroke Scale and 9 of 11 (82%) Modified NIH Stroke Scale items showed excellent interrater reliability. Spearman correlations were > or =0.93. This Internet system is reliable and valid. Further studies should assess its use in acute stroke.
