Telemedicine Robotic Technology
Belton Regional Medical Center is the first hospital in the community to offer telemedicine robotic technology that assists in the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients. The new robot helps emergency room physicians access a neurologist more quickly so they can decrease the amount of time it takes to diagnose and treat stroke patients.
