Avizia, powering system-wide telehealth, has announced the availability of its updated telestroke workflow, the company said.
Coupled with industry-leading audio and visual capabilities, as well as enhanced far-end camera control functionality, Avizia´s stroke workflow enables unrivaled in-application collaboration with other members of the care team and family–streamlining decision-making and closing communications gaps.
The availability of this streamlined collaboration functionality is significant. The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association published extended timeframes in the 2018 Guidelines for the Early Management of Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke.
With this update, the window for stroke treatment has been expanded, allowing for patients to be eligible for thrombectomy up to 24 hours after symptom onset.
Additionally, the guidelines recommend the use of telehealth in guiding the administration of intravenous tPA. For providers using streamlined and integrated telestroke solutions, this means even more opportunities to lower disability from stroke. Communication and collaboration will continue to be key for driving care coordination in order to deliver the best outcomes for stroke patients.
Avizia partners with providers to deploy and power system-wide telehealth. To do this, Avizia combines a collaborative approach with a market-leading telehealth solutions suite that scales across the continuum of care. Trusted by four out of the top five IDNs in the nation and one in four US hospitals, Avizia empowers providers to deliver unparalleled access and clinical excellence to patients. Visit www.avizia.com.
