Miami Valley Hospital, part of Premier Health, was recently featured on the news for their implementation of both the RAPID stroke imaging platform and Pulsara's communication platform.
"When patients come in to the hospital after having a stroke, there's a lot of information that needs to get collected, and a lot of people are part of the team that collects that information," said Dr. John Terry, Director of Inpatient Stroke Care at Premier Health. "Pulsara allows all those people to be able to communicate and know what everyone else is doing at the same time." Dr. Terry says that that transparency and ease of communication has changed the hospital's stroke treatment protocols in a "very beneficial way."
Dr. Terry also explained that RAPID helps get information from the CT scan to the care providers in very little time to help them make treatment decisions. Miami Valley Hospital is the first to integrate the Pulsara and RAPID platforms. "When we're communicating in Pulsara and the image becomes available from the CT scanner, the RAPID app pushes them into Pulsara."
Because minutes matter, Dr. Terry and his team use the Pulsara and RAPID integration to simplify and shave time off of the stroke treatment process. Watch the full interview here:
