EEG Monitoring FAQs
At CortiCare, we’ve worked hard to make remote EEG monitoring a simple process. Here are a few commonly asked questions.
What do we need to get started?
Once our service contract is completed and signed, we can get started. We can use your EEG systems (any brand) or we can provide systems if needed.
When are the technologists available and where are they located?
Our Registered EEG Technologists are located throughout the U.S. and are available on-call for any amount of monitoring time. Our staff typically remotely connect to your EEG system to monitor your patient within 30 minutes of your call to CortiCare.
How does CortiCare connect to our EEG system? What if the connection is lost?
CortiCare uses several highly secure and sophisticated HIPAA-compliant interface software packages. The technology allows point-to-point remote seizure monitoring over an internet connection. We work closely with your IT department to obtain approvals and test the best solution. If the connection is lost, the EEG system will continue recording, and our technologist will review any data not monitored once reconnected. No patient data is ever lost on the EEG system.
Who can remotely connect to the EEG system?
The CortiCare EEG monitoring technologist, the reading neurologist, and any authorized hospital clinician can view the patient data on the EEG system at the same time. Our technologists monitor several patients simultaneously and handle remote connections with physicians.
What happens when a potential seizure is monitored?
The tech will immediately call the reading neurologist, inform them of the findings, and ask if they want to connect to see the patient data for further interpretations and recommendations.
