We are implementing a new initiative to improve access for patients with Parkinson's disease who do not have access to care.
We will provide one-time consultations via web-based videoconferencing with a Johns Hopkins specialist to any patient wherever he or she lives. In addition to receiving care, patients will receive:
- Advice on possible diagnoses
- Recommended tests that can be performed
- Their prognosis
- Possible changes to their medication
- Therapies they can utilize such as physical and speech therapy
- Further counseling
Each visit will last 30 minutes and be conducted using a secure encrypted, HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing system (Vidyo through ID Solutions) and high definition web cameras.
Information on the consultation will be provided to the patient and a letter will be sent to his or her designated physician.
Because of state licensure rules, the following patients are eligible for the program:
- U.S. patients living in the following states: California, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New York
- We welcome patients from around the world
Patients must have access to a computer and high-speed internet. We can help provide web-camera capabilities.
For more information or to request a consultation, contact the Johns Hopkins Global Telemedicine Clinic for Parkinson's Disease at 410-502-6198 or toll free at 855-237-7446.
