Despite the rapid growth of neurointerventional medicine over the past two decades, there are numerous challenges in today’s stroke care environment. In the aftermath of disappointing trial results that are raising questions about procedural efficacy and calling into question the ability of Endovascular Therapy (EVT) to achieve good patient outcomes, stroke centers are faced with a new urgency and responsibility to ensure that their stroke programs are operating at maximum efficiency and to advance every element of optimal patient care.
INSTOR can make a significant impact in direct and indirect ways by:
Facilitating Cost-Savings. INSTOR was specifically designed for efficient data management and sophisticated analysis. The rewards of process improvement can be clearly demonstrated by INSTOR with numerous easily understood graphical reports. As these increased efficiencies lead to improved patient care and better clinical outcomes, your hospital benefits in numerous ways. Patients spend less time in intensive care, and length of stay for stroke patients is shortened.
Underscoring Program Success to Senior Leadership. When you are tasked with detailing your stroke program results to those bodies vested with ultimate authority in the affairs of your institution, INSTOR is your resource. From demographics/co-morbidities that shed light on your institution’s stroke population to process data that reveals long- and short-term trends in performance and clinical outcomes (with or without individual patient risk-adjustment), INSTOR provides the kind of high-level data that will stand up to scrutiny and help reinforce your hospital’s leadership in stroke care on a national and local level.
Ensuring Substantive Marketing.
