He works with acute stroke patients in the Neurology-Stroke Care Program at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Md. Barbash works with nurse practitioners and a limited number of special- ists. His patients usually come in through the ER. Barbash and his leagues use col- Vidyo's telemedicine technology as a service.
