The Challenge: While medical therapy is available at most acute stroke centers, EVT availability has been centralized to large hospitals with specialized equipment and personnel.
Minutes matter to stroke patients – time is brain.
Is it better for patients to bypass a non-EVT capable centre in favour of an EVT equipped centre, or should they receive medical therapy as soon as possible and then be transferred to an EVT hospital?
The transport decision is context specific!
The Solution: Through years of published research, DESTINE has developed a decision support tool that optimizes patient outcomes by identifying the best destination for suspected stroke patients.
DESTINE’s sophisticated algorithm incorporates the progression of the disease with geographic and health system variables. The tool creates population-level easy to read transport maps that are cloud-accessible, regionally customized, and evidence-based.
