WSC 2023 | AI in acute stroke care: cutting door-to-neurointerventionalist time for better outcomes

Theresa Sevilis, MD, DO, TeleSpecialist LLC, Fort Myers, FL, presents findings from two studies examining the impact of AI-based care platforms on reducing the time from patient arrival to neurointerventionalist (NIR) notification in acute stroke care. In the first study, known as VALIDATE, the focus was on comparing healthcare facilities using the VIZ.AI disease detection and care coordination platform with those not utilizing any AI platform. Analyzing data from the TeleCare database, the study revealed a substantial overall difference of 40 minutes in door-to-NIR notification time between VIZ.AI-equipped facilities and non-AI facilities. This difference remained significant across the thrombectomy-capable and non-thrombectomy-capable facilities. Even in the pre-alert patient group, where teleneurologists had been preemptively alerted, there was a 58-minute difference between the AI and non-AI equipped centers. The second study employed multiple AI platforms to demonstrate the universal efficacy of advanced imaging software in reducing the door-to-NIR notification time. This study also revealed a time difference of 34 minutes between AI-equipped and non-AI facilities. Additionally, while higher rates of large vessel occlusion (LVO) detection were noted with AI use, there were lower rates of patients being accepted for neurointervention, suggesting a potential reduction in futile patient transfers. This interview took place at the World Stroke Congress (WSC) 2023 in Toronto, Canada.
