The Facts Are Startling

%

Acute care complications occur in 85% of strokes

%

Readmission occurs in 13% of stroke cases

%

Stroke recurrence occurs in 20% of cases within 90 days

%

Risk factor control for key elements, such as blood pressure and diabetes control, is at most 45% for post-stroke patients

So What’s Wrong With The Current Stroke Care Model?

fragmented

Too Fragmented

Even with the current stroke center certification guidelines that over 1,750 hospitals are certified as, care coordination and an interdisciplinary team approach does not occur between the existing care silos from emergent/triage (EMS/ED) to acute (hospital) to post-acute and chronic care.

binoculars

Focus on Just First Days of Care

Stroke care is not just about the technology, procedures, and care that treat the initial stroke in the first few days. Stroke care requires teamwork that extends from the hospital to post-acute period and supporting the patient, family, and caregiver for an extended time period.

costly

Too Costly Due to Reactive Care

Today, we wait for high-risk stroke patients to arrive back as a readmission or recurrent stroke. Comprehensive and truly effective stroke care requires an engineered system that proactively addresses risk factor management and reduces cost from acute to post-acute care.

Stroke Link Health Offers a Better Model

The Stroke Link Health approach integrates the individual silos of care beginning en route to the hospital through what is typically referred to as the neglected first year at home. Through innovative telehealth technology platforms that combine care management and education, we enable collaboration across the continuum of care with our Stroke Central service coordination among providers and Stroke Mobile home-based service for patients and families for 12 months. Yes, an entire year of care and follow-up is part of the missing link in today’s care.

Our Proven Model Improves Patient Outcomes & Reduces Immediate and Long-Term Cost of Care.

By integrating and coordinating care using a proven stroke care model that extends outside of the hospital care, we are able to see game-changing results in stroke patients and the impact on the family and caregivers, including lower stroke recurrence and hospital readmissions and increased functional outcomes.
