Using technology and data to improve recognition of stroke
Greater Manchester Connected Health Cities use technology and data to improve the diagnosis and treatment of stroke. In GM anything up to 50% of patients taken to a hyper-acute stroke ward are not actually having a stroke, they are having a stroke mimic. At Salford Royal we are using data to improve the recognition of stroke by paramedics so to minimise the number of non-stroke patients entering the stroke pathway. This seminar will discuss how we are linking historical ambulance data with data from Salford Royal Foundation Trust to identify false positive cases (stroke mimics) and explore how such situations may arise. Changes can then be put in place to ensure patients go to the right place, at the right time for the right care.
