Protocol Driven Care, Fast
Let us help your Hospital become a Certified Stroke Center
Each year, approximately 795,000 people suffer a stroke. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States. Managing acute stroke is extremely time sensitive. The decision whether or not to provide potentially life saving, disability minimizing treatment must be made within a few hours of the onset of symptoms. Unfortunately, not all hospitals and emergency rooms are optimally equipped to handle these cases. Telestroke services can rapidly deliver expert neurologists to any hospital. The American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association both recommend telestroke services, especially in under served areas.
Synapse can bring stroke specialists to your facility. Our experienced neurologists will be available for consultation to your facility 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We can help set up telemedicine based stroke protocols for your facility so that it can become a Certified Stroke Center. Benefits of becoming a Stroke Center include:
- Improves quality of care provided to patients
- Publicly demonstrates the facility's commitment to a higher standard of care
- Provides a competitive edge in the marketplace
- Enhances staff recruitment and development
- Recognition by insurers and other third parties
Your hospital, providers, and (most importantly) your patients can all benefit from Synapse telestroke services. Contact Synapse today to learn more.
