The Link to Comprehensive, Coordinated Stroke Care
As a provider or health system, you know the facts – that complications occur in the majority of hospitalized stroke patients, that readmissions and recurrences happen all too frequently and that risk factors go largely uncontrolled when those patients leave the hospital. We know patients require on-going and comprehensive care and education to support their long-term journey back to health.
Improvements can be made to today’s stroke care through the implementation of an integrated stroke practice unit that starts with the earliest care in the emergency room through the full hospital stay and linking the same level of stroke-specific care and coordination into the post-acute and chronic care stages. Stroke Link Health does just that while utilizing telehealth to ensure connectivity is maintained between stroke experts in the hospital and the stroke team providing both in-person and virtual care management in the home and post-acute environment.

Get in Touch
Providers, particularly hospitals that are certified stroke programs, are well-positioned to deliver the highest level of acute stroke care interventions and services. But, the expertise and ability to extend that level of dedicated and expert care across the full continuum for an extended time frame into the post-acute and chronic stages is limited.
