(Greenwood, S.C., March 16, 2022) – As a leader in stroke care, Self Regional Healthcare has partnered with Viz.ai to bring the first FDA-cleared computer-aided triage system to Greenwood, SC. Self Regional will be deploying Viz.ai’s AI-powered care coordination platform throughout our network to help facilitate early access to the most advanced care for our patients. Self Regional is the first in the Lakelands to partner with Viz.ai to bring its award-winning software which utilizes artificial intelligence to accelerate the time to treatment, greatly improving patient outcomes.
The Viz Platform is now utilized in over 900 hospitals across the U.S. and Europe and touches almost two patients every minute. The Viz.ai solutions will allow Self Regional to further enhance the power of our stroke care team through faster detection and notification of suspected Large Vessel Occlusion (LVO) strokes and beyond and allow care teams to securely communicate to synchronize care and determine the optimal patient treatment decision.
Dallas Swartzentruber, Coordinator of the Stroke and Trauma Program at Self Regional Healthcare added, ” We are thrilled about this partnership and to be able to offer this service to our patients. This critical technology will help us provide stroke care even faster to our patients, which will help us save more lives.”
Care teams using Viz.ai’s AI-powered care coordination platform can potentially save critical minutes, even hours, in the triage, diagnosis and treatment of strokes and other disease states. Viz.ai’s image analysis facilitates the fast and accurate triage of suspected LVOs in stroke patients and improved collaboration between clinicians at comprehensive and referral hospitals. Viz.ai synchronizes care in real time across the whole care team, enabling a new era of synchronized care, where the right patient gets to the right doctor at exactly the right time.
