Physician's FAQs

What types of EEGs does Neurotech do? Can they all be done in the home?
We can do any EEG in the home. We do Routine, Sleep Deprived, Short-Term, and Long-Term EEGs. Long-term EEGs can be one day to many weeks, depending on the needs of the patient/physician. Neurotech also provides on-site or on-call EEG testing as well as remote cEEG monitoring in the ICU or EMU.
Can an EEG be done anywhere else besides the home?
Yes, we can go to hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and assisted living facilities. EEG testing can take place almost anywhere.
Are there any age limits for the EEGs Neurotech provides?
No, Neurotech does EEGs on newborns and the elderly and every age in between. We also work with patients with mental and physical disabilities.
Who does the billing for the EEG?
Neurotech bills for the technical component while the referring/interpreting physician bills for their own professional interpretation of the EEG.
How can I report the EEG?
The neurologist can report the EEG immediately through our secure online portal. This provides an instant transcription EEG report. This report can be saved, emailed or printed immediately upon completion. Or, if the neurologist prefers, he or she can report through their own transcription service.
How will I know when my patient's EEG is available to be reviewed/reported?
When referring a patient to Neurotech, please let us know how you would like to be contacted when the EEG is completed. We can email, call, text, or page you instantly when the EEG is ready for review.
Can I re-montage the EEG during review?
Yes. Just like any other digital EEG software, you can re-montage or change filters/settings on the EEG you are reviewing. You can even create your own montages, filter settings and make these your default. By setting a default, your montage and settings will always be displayed each time you open up a new EEG for review.
How can I get the data to review?
The most common way physicians get their data is through our secure online portal. This data can be accessed through any secure internet connection.
Does Neurotech offer any night or weekend appointments?
Yes. Neurotech offers weekday, weeknight, and weekend appointments.
Who does the scheduling and preauthorization of EEGs?
Neurotech does all the scheduling and preauthorization before any EEG is started. We contact the patient and try to accommodate their schedule to meet their needs for their prolonged EEG. The patient will know if the EEG is covered by insurance or not. In most cases, the insurance will cover the EEG test.
How soon can I get a patient in for an urgent EEG study?
We can get most urgent EEGs started the day they are requested. The earlier in the business day we are notified, the more likely this can occur.
What is the Neurotech scanning/pruning process of the entire Long-Term EEG?
The entire EEG recording will be scanned by our Registered EEG Technologists and run through a spike and seizure detection process. We will then create a pruned file for the neurologist to review along with the entire EEG with both abnormal and normal clips.
How can Neurotech guarantee a quality EEG recording in the home environment?
Neurotech provides 24/7 remote monitoring. This means our Registered EEG Technologists will monitor each study for quality control throughout the entire EEG recording. We know immediately when electrodes come loose, impedances are high, or if the patient is not on video. We do our best to rectify any of these or other issues if they occur. If these issues do occur, we can resolve them by calling the patient, intervening through the internet, or dispatching an “on-call” EEG technologist to resolve any issues during the monitoring period. This results in the highest quality in-home Long-Term EEG, with minimal EEG artifact and patients being on video.
Who can interpret the EEGs?
Any neurologist can read and bill for the professional interpretation of the EEG. Some neurologists who refer to Neurotech prefer to have a board-certified neurologist or epileptologist interpret the EEGs for them. Others prefer to interpret and bill their own studies.
Can you record the EEG with video?
Yes. We can record video with any of our EEGs.
What patient insurances does Neurotech accept?
Neurotech accepts all major insurances, local plans, Medicare, and Medicaid. If we are not in-network with a particular insurer, our billing department will pursue whether an exception is possible.
