The Link to Better Patient Outcomes

The healthcare community has a saying – “time is brain” – when it comes to strokes. It means that every second counts to limit damage, to save lives. Access to immediate care is so important, but so is access to highly coordinated and comprehensive care that spans those first hours through the first year post stroke.

Stroke is the number one cause of disability in the United States and having access to long-term coordinated and comprehensive care from hospitalization to at-home recovery is what improves patient outcomes.
