Average: 2.9 (7 votes)

The Stroke Code mobile application (app) is a robust clinical decision support and evaluation tool designed to increase the speed, accuracy, and efficacy of acute stroke care from door to needle.

Stroke Code is a commercial-grade mobile app developed by the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs to facilitate the evaluation and treatment of a patient during an episode of acute stroke care.  The app integrates the latest National Institute of Health (NIH) stroke scale and scoring criterion with current American Heart Association stroke care guidelines. The app also provides real-time decision guidance for alteplase (t-PA) usage and endovascular transfers.

Health care providers can use the app at a patient’s bedside or within telehealth scenarios. Neurologists or any medical staff supporting the attending neurologist can use the app.

During a stroke, almost two million neurons die every minute. Stroke Code is designed to accelerate stroke care during the critical “golden hour” and thereby provide the best opportunity to reduce or even eliminate perceptible brain damage.
