Virginia Mason Medical Center is a nonprofit health care system based in King County, Seattle, serving the central Puget Sound region and Yakima area.
Focused on continually delivering the highest quality of care to patients, care teams at Virginia Mason Medical Center wanted to innovate the way they communicated with one another to better respond to time-sensitive stroke cases.
With multiple staff members, it can be challenging to ensure everyone is continually aware of important information about a specific stroke patient. For example, data that helps determine the severity of the stroke is crucial for identifying the appropriate treatment to prepare for, but sometimes this information is not relayed to all team members. Virginia Mason understood that reliable communication is key, and sought to provide a resource to that would help them collaborate in real-time to treat stroke patients.
Bringing together our innovative PULSARA® PLATFORM with our Internet of Lifesaving People™ advisory services to promote streamlined workflows and positive change management to enable real-time communication and information sharing for healthcare teams. It's About Time. It's About People.
The Pulsara applications are intended to facilitate communication for and accelerate preparation of acute care coordination. The applications are not intended to be relied upon for making diagnostic or treatment decisions or used in connection with monitoring a patient.
