Abstract

This study evaluated the impact of telemedicine technology on the provision of neurosurgical health services. We focused on the differences between the use of real time audio-visual teleconferencing and teleradiology versus conventional telephone consultations in the referral of neurosurgical patients from a large district general hospital. All patients requiring emergency neurosurgical consultation were included for randomization into telephoneconsultation only (Mode A), teleradiology and telephone consultation (ModeB) and video-consultation (Mode C). Measures of effectiveness included diagnostic accuracy and adverse events during the transfer and Glasgow OutcomeScore. In a 10-month period, 327 patients were recruited and randomized into the study: the male/female ratio was 2:1 and the number of patients required to be transferred to the neurosurgical unit was 125 (38%). There was atrend towards a more favourable outcome in the video-consultation mode (44%, Mode C), versus teleradiology (31%, Mode B), versus telephone consultation (38%, Mode A). The interim data of this prospective randomized trial suggests that video-consultation may have a favourable, impact on emergency neurosurgical consultations. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
