The University of Kansas Health System will employ a new technology to serve select rural Kansas hospitals. The hospitals are among the 40 rural Kansas hospitals served by the system’s Kansas Heart and Stroke Collaborative program.

In 2015, Redivus Health created a mobile app that reduces medical error in cases of cardiac arrest, stroke and sepsis. The app offers standardized, step-by-step protocols for care.

“For rural hospitals that see fewer strokes, we expect this tool to provide both education and time-sensitive guidance to follow the stroke treatment steps,” said Marilyn Rymer neurologist at the University of Kansas Health System in a release. “When every minute counts for the stroke patients, we hope to improve the confidence in making critical decisions.”
