The new partnership combines LocumTenens.com's established staffing expertise and telemedicine presence with REACH Health's enterprise telemedicine software solution, the REACH Access Platform. Through the partnership, LocumTenens.com will provide healthcare facilities across the U.S. with access to board-certified and licensed neurologists via a secure telemedicine link using the REACH Access Platform.  The combination of specialist staffing with leading telemedicine software will help healthcare facilities offer vital and life-saving neurology coverage without devoting resources to building or expanding a service line or providing 24/7 coverage. Through the partnership, healthcare facilities and their patients can connect with some of the nation's leading neurologists in minutes, enabling them to treat emergencies such as strokes as well as conduct peer-to-peer consultations and clinical patient consults via the proven REACH Health solution.

LocumTenens.com team members manage credentialing, licensing and scheduling of neurologists based on a facility's needs. The REACH Health software solution enables a facility and the neurologist to connect via a HIPAA-compliant network. The software incorporates a wide range of specialty-specific diagnostic tests and tools that combine real-time audio/video technology with vital patient data, clinical workflow and images to address remote patients' needs. Following best practices for neurology, the data fields contain pertinent clinical prompts to capture information specific to patients presenting with neurological exams. This includes survey tools such as the Glasgow Coma Scale and MMSE.

"We are pleased to be able to team up with a reputable group such as REACH Health to ensure patients have access to high-quality neurology care, no matter where they are located or when they need it," said R. Shane Jackson, president of LocumTenens.com. "With more patients than ever seeking access to care delivery networks, and the number of physicians, especially specialists, being limited, partnerships such as this one will ensure that hospitals and healthcare organizations are able to provide the quality health care patients need. We are glad to combine our almost four years of telemedicine staffing expertise with REACH Health's proven technology."

"We believe that LocumTenens.com offers one of the highest quality and most effective physician coverage models in the industry," said Steve McGraw, president and CEO of REACH Health, Inc. "We are very pleased to establish this relationship that will provide healthcare providers of all sizes and practice settings with access to the unique services of LocumTenens.com via one of the most flexible and cost-effective enterprise telemedicine solutions."
