Improving Stroke Outcomes Utilizing Data and Technology

11:30am - 12:00pm Friday, March 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W304A

Description

Mackenzie Health's approach to digital health has improved patient care allowing patients to recover faster. During this presentation, improving stroke outcomes utilizing data and technology will be profiled as one of three abstracts that earned the hospital the prestigious HIMSS Davies Award in 2019. Identifying the type of stroke a patient is having is incredibly important before administering lifesaving tPA (tissue plasminogen activator). The quicker the DTN time (door to needle, a commonly known metric) can greatly improve patient outcomes and recovery time. By using Mackenzie Health's electronic medical record, clinicians at the hospital reduced the DTN time significantly from 53.5 to 27 minutes utilizing data and technology and LEAN methodology. The sustainable improvement in DTN has more patients recovering faster and being able to be discharged home without significant impairment.
