There is a dramatic increase of neurological diseases world wide –not only non-communicable diseases such as stroke but also degenerative diseases , such as dementia and parkinsons disease and neurooncology– on the other hand there is a huge unmet need for specialists in neurology, for covering emergencies worldwide, for education of doctors, nurses, therapists as well as supporting patients and families. Teleneurology is defined by the use of telematics tools in the vast field of neurology. Telematic is a technology, which links the fields of telecommunication with computer science. It is already increasingly used for the assessment and review of patient information including history, examination or investigations by a health professional that is separated temporally and spatially from the patient. Not only in the prehospital phase, also during the hospital phase and after discharge teleneurology will cover in future many topics, There are further new applications as well as research projects in different fields such as stroke, epilepsy, degenerative diseases and others as well as remote education programs. Always one has to be aware of the responsibility of data safety on the one hand but there is a tremendous chance and opportunity. Telemedicine a proposed method to increase access to limited speciality expertise in a feasible, efficient and cost-effective manner especially for geographically remote areas but also for increasingly isolated patients in the urban setting. The goal of teleneurology is to provide a platform for sharing information, new opportunities and research in this exciting new field.
