Jefferson Health Neuroscience Network Ranking US News

Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience (JHN) established the Jefferson Health Neuroscience Network (JHNN) to connect patients and doctors at regional hospitals with Jefferson specialists who have the expertise to diagnose time-sensitive neurological disorders.

What Does the Jefferson Health Neuroscience Network Mean for Patients?

When hospitals join this network, patients have access to:

  • The latest clinical protocols and trials available
  • Community education programs
  • Priority transfers for acutely ill patients to JHN
  • Community-based specialists
  • Jefferson Expert Teleconsulting (JET), the region's first university-based, high-tech mobile robotic system for acute stroke

JET provides network hospitals with 24/7 access to vascular neurologists and neurosurgeons for emergency consultative services. The primary goal of this program is to complement the care provided by community neurologists and/or emergency physicians to those patients presenting with symptoms of a stroke.

How Does the Jefferson Health Neuroscience Network Work?

At the request of the community hospital physician(s), a Jefferson neurovascular specialist will "beam in" via a robot placed in the network hospital emergency department. After consultation with the patient and/or family, the physicians will determine the best treatment option for the patient. The goal is to keep the patient at the community hospital.

If the prescribed treatment is unavailable at the community hospital, the patient and/or family, in discussion with the physicians, may decide to transfer the patient to Jefferson or to another facility with the clinical expertise and resources to properly treat the patient.
