Sevaro's Data-Driven Telestroke Model Empowers Hospitals to Create More Stroke Survivors

Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, second leading cause of death world-wide and the leading cause of long-term disability. Nearly 800,000 people suffer from a stroke every year in the U.S., yet many hospitals still aren’t properly equipped to handle acute stroke care. Stroke is a time-dependent, neurological emergency that can be treated if timely access to care is provided. Every minute during a stroke, nearly 1.9 million neurons are damaged, leading patients to become paralyzed, unable to speak, see or walk. This can be reversed with quicker diagnosis, treatment and transfer to the correct hospital for life-saving neurological interventions. With the costs of treating strokes expected to rise to over $184 billion by the year 2030, the American Heart & American Stroke Association has called for an increase in telestroke services such as Sevaro. With a third of Americans living over an hour away from a primary stroke center, Sevaro's telestroke services can be life-saving.

Bottom line, when seeking emergency care like stroke, every minute counts. Sevaro's team responds in seconds through OneCall.

As an industry leader, Sevaro combines technology, communication, workflows, a network of physicians, records tracking, data and analytics while providing evidence based care to improve patient outcomes. Our quality assurance program provides benchmarks for maintaining and ensuring clinical excellence.

Type of Services

1 Emergent Stroke Care
  • OneCall does it all. When time is brain, our OneCall approach allows the emergency department to access the vascular neurologist within 45 seconds. No complicated call schedule to remember and no confused call center representatives. Just dial one number, anytime and speak directly with a vascular neurologist for faster treatment decision making

2 Inpatient Followup
  • We can help with the expert stroke care in hospital. Appropriate in-hospital post stroke care is extremely critical to ensure good outcomes in regards to morbidity and mortality of the stroke patients.

3 Outpatient Physical Therapy
  • Telehealth outpatient physical therapy delivered to the patients either at their home or at a site you deem appropriate within/affiliated to your hospital.
4
4 Stroke Followup Clinic
  • Stroke Followup after leaving the hospital is a critical aspect to ensure patients have a meaningful recovery. We will make sure the stroke patients see a stroke neurologist after discharge through telemedicine.
5
5 My Stroke Journey Support Program
  • Patients will have an opportunity to join our Stroke Support Group, which will connect them to other stroke survivors. As vascular neurologists, we understand stroke recovery continues to happen after discharge. Our goal is to support our patients even after they go home by providing them access to resources such as therapy, life coaching and mental health counseling.
