Stroke Communication Tool

Stroke Communication Tool is a mobile application designed to enable faster treatment by providing a hospital-tailored protocol with easy communication- and information sharing among relevant stroke team members during hyper-acute stroke care. The tool allows the entire stroke team to track the patient along the care flow, access standardized patient specific information, view benchmarking and quantification of treatment time and communicate with other team members on call in an intuitive way, directly from their smartphones or tablets situated at strategic locations along the care flow.
