For Stroke Patients, Every Second Counts
How can you improve your door-to-treatment times?
Stroke patients are at risk of losing up to 2 million brain cells per minute, and definitive stroke care should occur in less than 60 minutes.
To save critical time, improve metrics and assure the best possible patient outcomes, EMS, hospital emergency departments, and acute care teams need rapid access to stroke assessments and patient information.
Fast secure mobile telehealth and team communications with data and live ETA enables lifesaving preparation before the patient even arrives.
Reduce stroke treatment times
To lessen death and disability caused by stroke, rapid, streamlined and coordinated stroke care must be available 24/7. The GD e-Bridge Stroke mobile telemedicine Module prepares EMS and hospital teams for stroke care regardless of location—allowing you to develop and maintain streamlined telestroke processes with your stroke care team.
The highly configurable e-Bridge Stroke Module facilitates and accelerates stroke workflow and management from first medical contact by EMS all the way to CT and intervention. With HIPAA secure messaging, live video telehealth, and one-touch alerts, the Stroke Module reduces bottlenecks and constraints. Coordinators can track time-stamped case data and documentation for reporting, EMS feedback, benchmarking and quality review for improvements. Your process, optimized your way.
- Faster door-to-needle times and administration of clot dissolving drugs.
- Cost savings on documentation, staffing hours, and lab activations.
- Improved quality and assurance with event time-stamping and case data documentation,
- Early awareness of complications, team communication, and training and documentation for better patient outcomes.
- Maintain Comprehensive Stroke Center certification
GD always alerts the Code Stroke team of an incoming patient via EMS, which provides a better clinical picture of the patient. The EMS voice clip is sent to the team through the GD Telehealth app that typically encompasses the following patient information: last known well time, current vital signs, blood sugar, a summary of stroke symptoms the patient is currently experiencing and the patient ETA. This prepares the team to provide focused timely care that our stroke patients deserve. It is our goal to provide timely intervention for our stroke patients to decrease death and disability. The GD Telehealth app connects the dots for our Stroke Team and enhances internal communication between team members.
