The first Telestroke workshop organized by the ESO Telestroke Committee took place in Munich, Germany from 5 to 6 July. the workshop was hosted by the Neurology staff of the Klinikum Harlaching chair Prof. Roman Haberl and the Tempis coordinators Gordian Hubert and Peter Muller-Bama.

The meeting was attended by 12 doctors coming from 7 different countries (Croatia, Italy, Macedonia, Philippines, Slovenia, Serbia and Spain).

Speakers from the Tempis staff, Dr. Frank Kraus and the ESO committee members gave a wide overview of the main solution and updates on the most advanced frontiers of telemedicine. Working groups simulated telemedicine models to be set up in each country, focusing on most disadvantaged geographical areas. A simulated call from a stroke centre was presented to the attendees. Also continental reimbursement policies, risk management aspects and technical issues were discussed.

The committee group looks forward producing shortly a recommendation paper and standard of certification for telestroke services.

Schermata 2017-06-24 alle 20.56.41.pngThe issue of stroke is particularly noticeable in neurology due to the high prevalence rate and serious consequences. Accordingly, telenurology is also intensively concerned with this disease pattern and attempts to contribute to medical progress in the field of neurology, using knowledge of the use of modern technologies. In Thuringia, the stroke telemedicine network "SATELIT" has existed for almost 5 years and has shown during this time that telemedical developments and application can help to contribute to the improvement of care quality in neurological diseases by means of computer-supported communication and network technologies. In Umbria, Italy a stroke network was successfully deployed since 2016 using fix units in the west of the county and mobile units in the earthquake area to the east. In addition to acute stroke treatment, the German Society for Telemedicine, in cooperation with the Hans Berger Clinic for Neurology at the University Hospital of Jena, will also be discussing with the First German Telenurology Congress the health policy and socio-political significance of the Telemedicine in neurology. The conference is aimed at clinicians, doctors, nurses, therapists and costumers as well as companies interested in current medical developments in the field of neurology, rehabilitation and aftercare. The focus of the 2017 Congress will be telemedicine in stroke care as the most important field of application. Other neurological applications such as dizziness, Parkinson's disease, or epilepsy are also being investigated. In addition, telemedicine products and latest developments are presented in an accompanying industrial exhibition.
