A Telestrokologist is a strokologist who is proficient with telemedicine tools and techniques necessary for remote stroke practice. In this article, the author discusses how enabling telemedicine technologies facilitate novel healthcare delivery modes for telestrokologists and the stroke patients they treat, here, there, and everywhere.
