In order to reduce treatment times and deliver faster care, Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center (BSLMC) began a new strategic initiative to improve the quality of care and outcomes of stroke patients. Identifying and treating stroke patients with tPA as early as possible is paramount to providing timely care to patients. Prior to this initiative, BSLMC’s length of time to intervene through tPA was less than ideal.
BSLMC needed a solution that would provide cohesive collaboration between all stroke team players within the system. They recognized that improving communication and workflows would help them rapidly assess stroke patients and deliver life-saving treatments. BSLMC adopted the TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform with Roles functionality as their main communication platform and integrated it with Decisio, a clinical decision support tool, to enable real-time stroke alerts and address their treatment time challenges.
