Dr. Umar Farooq, NeuroX’s Medical Director, notes, “We are committed to providing quality, on-going Neuro-Psych care to patients in their homes. With remote patient monitoring, it is possible to conduct in-home EEG diagnostics to evaluate seizure-like spells. In-home diagnostic results are comparable to the services provided in a hospital. We can monitor brain waves while the patient is at home doing daily activities. Not only is this more convenient and less stressful for the patient but is much less costly than a hospital stay. Stratus is a leader in video EEG technology and, together, we can bring neuro-diagnostics to patients in any community.”
“Stratus is proud to be the preferred EEG provider for NeuroX,” said Charlie Alvarez, Chief Executive Officer of Stratus. “The fundamental goals of each of our organizations are well aligned. We both believe that patients should have access to high-quality healthcare no matter where they live, including rural communities. We believe that working together with NeuroX we can not only expand patients’ access to ambulatory video EEG services but do so in a more convenient fashion. Ultimately, this leads to patients getting a more accurate and timely diagnosis, as well as the specialized care that they require to lead a better life.”
Dr. Waqas Ahmed, Founder and CEO of American TelePhysicians agrees, “Today marks another great day for our continued mission of improving access to healthcare and, with Stratus, we look forward to bringing another quality healthcare service to patients’ doorsteps.”
NeuroX and Stratus are rolling out the service initially in Florida markets with plans to expand soon.
