Abstract

Digital health has been rapidly thrust into the forefront of care delivery. Poised to extend the clinician’s reach, a new set of examination tools will redefine neurologic and neurosurgical care, serving as the basis for the digital neurologic examination. We describe its components and review specific technologies, which move beyond traditional video-based telemedicine encounters and include separate digital tools. A future suite of these clinical assessment technologies will blur the lines between history taking, examination, and remote monitoring. Prior to full-scale implementation, however, much more investigation is needed. Because of the nascent state of the technologies, researchers, clinicians, and developers should establish digital neurologic examination requirements in order to maximize its impact.
