With the advanced technology that is available today, many hospitals are striving to discover innovative ways to bring this technology to the patients.  Stroke patients are the type of patients that greatly need the technology to come to them to provide a faster diagnosis and administer medications as soon as possible.  A few hospitals in the US and Europe have discovered a way to do just that with the Mobile Stroke Unit.  The Mobile Stroke Unit has been developed with the cooperation of Neurologica/Samsung, select healthcare entities, and ambulance manufacturers.  The Mobile Stroke Unit contains a mobile CT unit that enables techs to take brain scans on site and communicate with doctors via video chat.

Because of its success the Mobile Stroke Unit is #1 on ECRI’s 2016 Top 10 Hospital C-Suite Watchlist.
