Streamline Your Stroke Service

Direct-to-Intervention removes the friction

Direct-to-Intervention care empowers hospitals to provide IV tPA and endovascular intervention earlier and more frequently to their patients. The elimination of numerous phone calls, handoffs, and referrals between several physicians, nurses and coordinators that congest patient care ensures that stroke patients are being evaluated by the right doctor at the right time.

Indirect Care Holds Back Hospitals

Resulting in patients missing out on valuable treatment opportunities

Most stroke patients are slow to receive IV tPA or endovascular treatment, or do not get it at all.

Large Vessel Occlusions

Represent a leading cause of disability and death

Stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability and death in the United States.1 Each year, approximately 280,000 large vessel occlusion strokes occur.2

Low Treatment Rates

Caused by indirect and interrupted care

Despite having effective treatments, fewer than 10% of large vessel occlusion stroke patients receive IV tPA or endovascular intervention.3

Long Times to Treatment

Flights from SF to NYC take less time

Of the fewer than 10% of LVOS treated with endovascular intervention, today it takes more than 5 hours before reperfusion is achieved--the same length of time it takes to fly from San Francisco to New York City.4 Every 15 minute delay in reperfusion leads to a decrease in the likelihood of a good outcome by 10%.5

Direct Care Elevates the Reputation of Hospitals

Right Patient. Right Doctor. Right Time. 

Promoting early detection, timely intervention, streamlined referrals.
