In 2006, the Krixi leadership team was responsible for creating the first ever commercially available web based telemedicine and telestroke service in the United States, effectively establishing the de facto standard in web based stroke care.
Since then, our team has collected extensive experience in setting up very effective and profitable telemedicine and telestroke networks, including some of the largest in the stroke belt in the United States.
We have fine-tuned our products, our user interfaces and our telemedicine and telestroke network development methodologies to help our participating institutions establish, build and optimize their outreach programs.
Faster onset-to-treatment times, better functional outcomes
With accessibility from any internet connected laptop or PC, Krixi CareTM provides physicians a convenient, easy-to-use interface to perform effective remote consultations. Eliminating the needs for physician travel and unnecessary patient transfers, Krixi CareTM reduces onset-to-treatment times, which have been shown to produce better functional outcomes for patients.
Reduced medico-legal risk, higher adoption rates for tPA
With completely documented consults, Krixi CareTM
reduces medico-legal risk associated with administration of tPA to stroke patients based on remote consultations. In fact, documentation of treatment contraindications has helped avoid frivolous lawsuits in the United States for non-consideration of thrombolytic treatment for stroke patients.
Also, real-time, virtual, collaborative consultations with neurologists have enabled spoke hospitals deliver thrombolytic treatment to over 30% of stroke patients admitted to their hospitals, as compared to the national average of 2 to 4%. In some rural hospitals, thrombolytic treatment is virtually non-existent, due to the lack of neurology coverage in their emergency rooms.
Krixi CareTM brings stroke care close to home, where it should be!
