The benefits of intraoperative monitoring span from physician, to patient, to hospital. IOM has several specific hospital benefits that decrease hospital risk and improve patient outcomes. These benefits include a decrease to patient liability, a decrease in patient’s length of stay, a decrease in hospital costs, and ,as mentioned before, an improvement in patient outcome. Each IOM case is monitored through web-based telemedicine by our qualified and board certified neurologist. By using IOM, we are able to decrease risk and therefore help the hospital avoid medical-legal issues.
