Telestroke Tips: How to Reduce Time to Treatment
Practical Advice for Minimizing Door-to-Needle and Door-to-Puncture Times with Telestroke
The introduction of telestroke technology has delivered vastly expanded access to expert stroke care. But these improvements did not result from the technology alone — they required thoughtful adaptations of existing stroke evaluation and treatment protocols. Growing acceptance and utilization of interventional therapies have likewise necessitated a fresh look.
In light of these advancements, REACH Health has assembled practical advice for minimizing door-to-needle and door-to-puncture times into its latest white paper, Telestroke Tips: How to Reduce Time to Treatment.
This white paper explains telestroke-specific best practices for reducing time to treatment for tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and endovascular therapy (EV). These suggested tactics are clinically validated and have been used in successful telestroke programs throughout the country.
Topics cover the entire stroke continuum of care and include:
- ED & neurology training
- Program performance metrics
- EMS & community education
- Telestroke triage
- Collaborative teleconsults
- And more
