RapidAI Unveils Prehospital Solution to Optimize Cross-Team Workflow and Improve Patient Care


Directly enhances collaboration between Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and hospital care teams

RapidAI, leading the next evolution of clinical decision making  and workflow, today announced the launch of their Rapid prehospital workflow solution for stroke, which optimizes coordination between EMS providers and hospital care teams to help  deliver patients the best care as fast as possible.  

Recent studies show that every ten-minute delay in the hospital resulted in eight weeks of  healthy life lost. Furthermore, every one-hour delay in the hospital resulted in 11 months of  healthy life lost. With the new prehospital solution, RapidAI is helping care teams give healthy  life back to patients by embracing the value of smart workflows. 

By streamlining communication and synchronizing patient data, the RapidAI prehospital  workflow apps, help both EMS and hospitals strengthen patient care from initial intake and  assessment all the way to discharge and follow up. EMS teams using the prehospital workflow  mobile app can follow a standardized stroke protocol and streamline data collection to help get  patients to an appropriate hospital. Meanwhile, the hospital stroke team can use the prehospital  workflow app to more easily collaborate with EMS in route by receiving and reviewing patient  data, and starting the stroke workflow.  

Laying the foundation for quicker, better care throughout every stage of the patient journey, the  Rapid prehospital solution enables EMS providers to: 

  • Establish and follow a standardized stroke protocol 
  • Select appropriate hospitals for patient care 
  • Share critical patient data with hospitals and specialists in real time 
  • Receive feedback on patient outcomes 

“Surviving a stroke can no longer be left to chance. Patients should not suffer unnecessarily  because of practice variability, inadequate communication, and antiquated point-of-entry  protocols for stroke,” said Ryan A. McTaggart, MD, Director of Interventional Neuroradiology at  Rhode Island Hospital. “The RapidAI prehospital app is a groundbreaking tool created and  designed by EMS professionals and specialized stroke teams to eliminate bottlenecks in care so  patients can return home to their loved ones without disability. It’s the holy grail for prehospital  and in-hospital stroke teams eager to do the best they can for these patients.” 

“The prehospital solution is a critical piece of our mission to revolutionize patient care for  neurovascular and vascular diseases,” said Don Listwin, President and CEO of RapidAI.  “Inefficient processes have serious consequences, and we’re thrilled to lead the charge on  shifting this paradigm for good. We’ll quickly evolve our prehospital solution beyond stroke to include STEMI and trauma. After all, a stronger workflow between EMS and care teams results  in stronger patient care all around.
