ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of a business relationship in setting-up a telestroke technology. The article cites that regional telestroke centers are emerging and this has brought improvement on specialty care because it provides rapid access to expert stroke care and removed unnecessary transport of patients. It suggests that there be a partnership and collaboration for telehealth programs like telestroke because the key to be successful is not just the technology but the relationship formed in setting up the program.
