Santa Barbara, Calif-based InTouch Health announces a global telehealth partnership with Menlo Park, Calif-based iSchemaView Inc in a news release.

Via this partnership, per the release, iSchemaView will integrate its RAPID stroke diagnostic tool into InTouch Health’s InTouch Telehealth Network.

The RAPID tool is engineered to provide viewing, processing, and analysis of blood flow in the brain, enabling physicians to more accurately assess the duration of a patient’s stroke and determine the best treatment, the release explains.

The InTouch Telehealth Network is designed to facilitate a remote consultation between a stroke doctor and patient during the critical time window for stroke treatment, which allows for more timely application of critical therapies, the release continues.

“We are pleased to partner with an innovative leader like iSchemaView to enable neurologists to gain accelerated insights into the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients,” says Yulun Wang, PhD, chairman and CEO, InTouch Health, in the release.

Greg Albers, MD, director, Stanford Stroke Center, and Pioneer of RAPID, says in the release that, “RAPID complements and expands the InTouch Health remote presence ecosystem, enhancing already state-of-the-art virtual telemedicine technologies to achieve a new level of care for individual hospitals and healthcare networks.”

Per the release, the partnership announcement was made at the 9th InTouch Telehealth Innovation Forum in Santa Barbara, Calif.
