"Using the Value Stream Mapping and the Post-it Notes helped us solve little problems that we didn’t even know existed...so that we could shave off every single second available, so that we could save as much brain as possible."

"TeleSpecialists have improved our facility’s stroke response dramatically. We improved from administering live-saving drugs within 30 minutes 50% of the time to 80% of the time. Their physicians are an integral part of our Emergency Department team who assess the patient quickly and intervene. Our clinicians’ knowledge of stroke symptoms has increased because the TeleSpecialists talk through their assessment and treatment plans in a coordinated fashion with our team."
Gwen Lambert, MSN, RN, NE-BC,Director of Professional Practice, CHS Pineville
