The Problem is Indirect Care

 

Today's Stroke Care is Indirect

Despite the heroic efforts of physicians and nurses, numerous phone calls, handovers and referrals mean that most stroke patients do not receive intervention in the form of IV tPA or endovascular treatment.1

Indirect Care Builds Barriers

<10% of stroke patients receive treatment

Indirect care results in low treatment rates. Despite having effective interventions for stroke, fewer than 10% of stroke patients receive IV tPA and endovascular treatment.2

 

Indirect Care Causes Delays

Time to treatment currently exceeds 5 hours

Indirect care causes delays that can lead to permanent disability and death.3 Median stroke onset to completion of endovascular intervention exceeds 5 hours.4 Early intervention with IV tPA and mechanical thrombectomy is critical.

A Better Way... Direct-to-Intervention

Introducing Direct-to-Intervention Care

Right patient. Right doctor. Right time.

Direct-to-Intervention care advances patients directly to specialists who can provide timely intervention and treatment. It removes much of the friction in today’s stroke workflow.

 

Direct-to-Intervention Powered by A.I.

Improved care powered by deep learning

Direct-to-Intervention care leverages artificial intelligence and deep learning to advance information about treatable patients straight to an interventionalist, presenting a new era of Intelligent Stroke Care.

Direct-to-Intervention on Your Phone

Artificial intelligence in your pocket

Direct-to-Intervention care is accessible through a smartphone. Now, specialists are empowered to facilitate transfer and treatment of stroke patients from their smartphone.
