The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the face of health care delivery as health systems were forced to come up with innovative ways to deliver services in a safe and efficient way to their patients. This is particularly true in the case of stroke, where the neurologist is tasked with orchestrating the evaluation of the patient by relying heavily on a health care team at a remote location. While the practice of telestroke was well-established prior to the pandemic, the emergence of new acute stroke therapies, endovascular triage, and larger and more consolidated stroke systems of care have added to the complexity of telestroke prortocols. To that end, it is imperative that there are protocols and systems in place to help the members of the team to perform an accurate assessment and provide the neurologist with the pertinent information needed for them to determine the best treatment option for the patient. Participants should learn the different models of telestroke systems of care, understand how to delineate the various roles and appropriate team members to best communicate during a high-quality telestroke encounter, discuss tools to create a telestroke protocol for various models of care, and consider the key components of documenting and integrating a telestroke encounter.
