Mayo Clinic pilots teleconcussion program

By

Mayo Clinic is piloting a telemedicine program that aims at filling gaps in concussion care for patients in rural Arizona.  Currently a third of rural Arizona lacks access to the kind of neurological expertise found in metro areas. Bert Vargas, MD, neurologist and assistant professor of Neurology at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, said the possibility of this technology is welcome news for doctors in rural areas, especially in light of the new concussion law in the state.
