SpecialtyCare is proud to offer intraoperative neuromonitoring (or IONM) services for hospitals and clinics nationwide. In fact, with over 110,000 cases per year, we’re the largest provider of IONM services in the entire country. Our goal is to improve patient outcomes by supporting your OR staff in a variety of ways, with safety always a priority. Let’s break down the IONM services we have to offer and how they can help make surgery safer in your OR.
We provide hospitals with highly trained clinicians to monitor the central nervous system during surgery. On average, our IONM clinicians have about eight years of experience in the field. They provide top-level care for your patients and integrate themselves with your OR team. Their constant surveillance and real-time feedback provide a roadmap for the surgeon, identifying changes in the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerve function throughout the procedure so that patients experience the best possible outcomes. Our clinicians are backed by online neuromonitoring physicians who observe each case via a secure internet connection, allowing for real-time communication with the on-site surgical neurophysiologist, operating surgeon, anesthesiologist, and other operating room personnel as needed.

How We Save You Money
Surgery departments are booking numerous surgeries every year where intraoperative neuromonitoring is utilized. Brain surgery, spine surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, and vascular surgery are just a few of the procedures that can include IONM. For hospitals to recruit and train their own surgical neurophysiologists would become very costly. What if there were a more affordable way? What if someone could provide them with clinicians that have already been trained and licensed at the fraction of the overall cost?
That’s where SpecialtyCare comes in. We do all the heavy lifting before we ever reach your hospital entrance. We save you time and money by managing the payroll, benefits, training, and certification for each clinician. We hold accreditation and certification from The Joint Commission (TJC). Our credentialing department manages all of the paperwork so it’s at your fingertips when you need it.
We deliver quality. Our robust one-year surgical neurophysiologist I training program received formal recognition by the Neurodiagnostic Credentialing and Accreditation Board with ABRET in 2017 and was honored in 2019 by the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE), receiving the Malcolm Knowles Award. With approval as a recognized program, our surgical neurophysiology trainees gain Pathway IV test eligibility for ABRET’s Certification in Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (CNIM) and we require all who complete our training program to get certified. We want only the best for our associates, your OR and most importantly, our patients.
