A new study from Northwell Health shows that most stroke patients are unsure of who their doctors are, and do not properly understand their medications. The study highlights the importance of ensuring patients understand their care plans to help reduce the risk of additional strokes. In the news release, researchers called for doctors to be more careful in informing the patients about their care plans and medications.
To minimize the risk of subsequent strokes and improve patient satisfaction, it is critical that stroke patients have a seamless care transition and are supported by their care teams. With the use of products like CipherOutreach and Echo, care teams can better proactively address patient issues before adverse events occur. To read more about the study, click here.
