Knoxville, Tenn. (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
PerfectServe, the leading provider of clinical communications and clinical information delivery, has announced the release of a new paper, “How to Reduce Acute Stroke Time-to-Treatment at St. John Providence.”
According to the report, “Operationalizing a coordinated rapid team response on a 24/7/365 basis can be a daunting administrative task and a significant barrier to providing timely acute stroke treatment.”
Staff at St. John Hospital and Medical Center in Detroit, Mich. have established a process to rapidly evaluate and treat acute stroke patients and in doing so, have experienced a 90 percent decrease in the on-call neurologist response time, and a 41 percent decrease in the door-to-CT completion time.
The paper cites “single-call notification of the acute stroke team with PerfectServe” as being central to the process and outlines the following steps to improve patient outcomes:
- Launching a team-based approach.
- Implementing a standardized process.
- Using call tracking to improve data collection.
