The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association has designated artificial intelligence company Viz.ai Inc as a compatible vendor for the Get With The Guidelines – Stroke Registry.
The Association’s Get With The Guidelines – Stroke program is designed to help hospitals measure and improve cardiovascular disease and stroke care through the promotion of consistent adherence to the most up-to-date research and scientific publications, clinical tools and resources, quality improvement field staff support, patient education resources, and continuous quality improvement performance feedback reporting.
Viz.Ai is reportedly the first artificial intelligence company recognized as a vendor, and this demonstrates the possible role of artificial intelligence in providing patient care, a media release from the company explains.
“The inclusion of Viz.ai as an American Heart Association Get With the Guidelines Compatible Vendor demonstrates the potential role that applied artificial intelligence and workflow software has in providing consistent quality care,” says Raul Nogueira, MD, Professor of Neurology at Emory University and Director of Grady’s Neuroendovascular Service, in the release. “Viz LVO serves as a fully automated stroke alert system that identifies suspected LVO patients who may be eligible for life-changing mechanical thrombectomy.”
As a compatible vendor, Viz.ai aims to improve quality metrics in the stroke workflow by facilitating fast and accurate detection and referral of large vessel occlusion (LVO) strokes and enabling better collaboration between the stroke teams at comprehensive and referral hospitals.
Viz.ai’s suite of deep learning applied artificial intelligence and workflow software is designed to automatically detect and directly alert on-call stroke specialists about suspected LVOs across their entire stroke network, which may be able to augments stroke teams’ capability to proactively identify and triage a potential stroke, according to the company.
“The Get With The Guidelines – Stroke program is the foremost program for improving stroke care by promoting consistent adherence to the latest scientific treatment guidelines,” comments Chris Mansi, neurosurgeon and CEO of Viz.ai, in the release. “The Get with the Guidelines – Stroke program has demonstrated improvements in stroke care in over 2,000 hospitals. Viz.ai is honored to be a compatible vendor that has demonstrated achieving measurable patient outcome improvements.”
