Healthcare IT Provider Collaborates With Nationally Acclaimed Comprehensive Stroke Center
ATLANTA, May 30, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Vizzia Technologies, a leading provider of fully managed real-time location systems (RTLS) for healthcare organizations, announced that the company has made commercially available StrokeStat℠, an innovative application that optimizes the treatment workflow for acute stroke patients.
In consultation with a nationally acclaimed comprehensive stroke center (certified level 1), Vizzia worked extensively with renowned neuroscience doctors, nurses and clinicians to create an innovative solution. StrokeStat℠ provides real-time, actionable data and patient location visualization to the trauma team, which helps minimize the critical 'door to needle' time when treating acute strokes.
The StrokeStat℠ application leverages real-time location systems (RTLS) infrastructure to capture the movements of acute stroke patients as they receive treatment for their condition, transforming that data into key information and automated communications that can be used to gain insight into the health of the patient and identifying bottlenecks that delay care.
“StrokeStat℠ helps stroke teams share vital information about each patient from the moment they enter the hospital’s workflow through the entire treatment and recovery process,” said David R. Wiedman, Chief Commercial Officer of Vizzia. “Each critical step is measured, including in transit time via helicopter or ambulance, to reduce a patient’s door to needle time.”
May is Stroke Awareness Month
“May is National Stroke Awareness Month.” According to the National Stroke Association, nearly 800,000 people in the U.S. will have a stroke this year, one occurring every 40 seconds, and taking a life approximately every four minutes. When it comes to stroke, every second counts. Know the signs of a stroke and act F.A.S.T. (Face drooping, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty, Time to call 911) if someone is having a stroke.
