Keeping track of our outcomes has never been easier. With two clicks, I’m able to view our outcomes stratified by occlusion location and NIHSS. Initial data entry is straightforward and is performed by our nurse. Comprehensive reports encompassing patient demographics, outcomes, metrics and even trend analysis are then available in seconds.

Neurologists, neuroInterventionists, emergency physicians and others have a vested interest in information that can shed light on all aspects of emergency stroke treatment. Specifically, INSTOR is the only emergency stroke registry tool that provides you with:
The Full Picture of Your Patient’s Care – Arrival to Outcomes. INSTOR is unique in its ability to provide individual patient timelines that clearly demonstrate where valuable time might have been saved, thus improving outcomes. At any given time, you can access single- and multi-factorial risk-adjusted clinical outcomes based upon various factors, including initial stroke severity (NIHSS), the Totaled Health Risks in Vascular Events (THRIVE) score, co-morbidities, original clot location, and other conditions. But just as important as ultimate outcomes, INSTOR provides invaluable information through comparison to a national aggregate for both IV tPA patients as well as Endovascular Therapy (EVT) patients. You get detailed, customized information, with a minimal investment of your time.
An Understanding of Individual Physician Performance and Institutional Influencing Factors. INSTOR is the only stroke registry that tracks the performance measures included in the Multi-Society Consensus Quality Improvement Guidelines of Intra-Arterial Catheter Director Treatment of Acute Ischemic Stroke supported by over ten medical societies. As these guidelines are the first to specifically mandate benchmarks for individual physician performance, as well as specify metrics for the major institutional processes that would influence physician performance and patient outcomes, they exist to improve quality of care in the emergency treatment of stroke.
A Platform to Keep Learning, and Contributing, to the World of Stroke. As emergency stroke treatment is still evolving, there is still much to learn. Which patients receiving which treatments do better? Which worse? T-occlusions or M-1 occlusions? What impact does the THRIVE score have on stroke treatment? How overwhelming is the initial NIHSS versus the patient’s age as a predictor of outcomes? How does diabetes or A-fib affect clinical outcomes? INSTOR provides you with information that can not only inform you, but when collectively utilized, can also inform the nation with unlimited publications.
