OUTCOMES DATA

Blue Sky Telemedicine believes that patient outcomes are the true measure of the quality of our program and services. We partner with local sites to obtain outcome data for stroke such as safety measures (hemorrhage rate and mortality), mimic treatment rates, and discharge disposition. Future state is to extend the outcomes data collection to all sites and networks.

ENGAGEMENT

Our stroke medical director and stroke coordinator respond to clinical issues as they arise from both internal and external sources. Both our stroke medical director and stroke coordinator are available to participate in case reviews and quality committees as requested. Our stroke coordinator also
provides educational webinars throughout the year on clinical and quality improvement topics.
