Collaborate Across Hospitals for

Better Triage-and-Transfer Decisions for ICH Trauma Patients

Today, 20% of intracranial hemorrhage transfers are unnecessary, resulting in compromised patient care, lost revenue for community hospitals and improper use of beds at comprehensive centers.

Workflow and communication tools, combined with AI-powered imaging, can help reduce these unnecessary transfers by facilitating better collaboration and data sharing across hospital networks. Teams can more easily identify patients for subspecialty management in their community hospital and those patients likely to benefit from transfer to a comprehensive treatment center.

Rapid ICH helps trauma teams at hospitals across referral networks collaborate on hemorrhagic patient care to save time, improve patient outcomes, and ensure efficient use of resources.

Getting the right patient to the right facility at the right time

Using the latest artificial intelligence technology, Rapid ICH quickly triages non-contrast CT (NCCT) scans and notifies clinicians at both the referring community hospital and comprehensive treatment center. This enables neurology specialists at comprehensive centers to better identify patients who would benefit from costly transfers and those better suited for comfort care in their community hospital.

Benefits to community hospitals:

ICH patients

Keep the ICH patients you can treat

  • Quickly assess, retain, and treat ICH patients who don’t require costly transfer
  • Easily collaborate with comprehensive surgical centers
  • Provide comfort care for those patients who won’t benefit from transfer, keeping them in their community close to family

Benefits to hub hospitals:

hub hospitals

Participate in triage at referring hospitals—and get control of who’s transferred to your facility

  • Assist referring facilities identify patents most likely to benefit from costly transfer
  • Ensure beds are used for patients likely to benefit from intracranial vascular procedures
  • Optimize use of limited critical care beds

Benefits to patients and families:

patients and families

Help patients who likely won’t benefit from transfer receive treatment or comfort care near family and friends

  • More patients stay in their community
  • Families and hospitals don’t incur expensive unnecessary transfer costs, including travel and lodging for family

Machine learning empowers faster and more accurate diagnosis

Rapid ICH Technology
The latest AI technology in the RapidAI platform works to automatically triage non-contrast CT cases and notify clinicians of possible intracranial hemorrhage in 3 minutes or less
Rapid ICH Accuracy
High accuracy helps reduce the burden of false positives and is well-suited for sites with no neuroradiologist on staff. With 95% sensitivity and 94% specificity and built-in communication. RAPID ICH detects all types of hemorrhage with a sensitivity of 95% and specificity of 94%.
Rapid ICH Workflow
Going mobile streamlines workflow across hospital networks
The Rapid Mobile App allows clinicians to view, organize and track cases from multiple sites and communicate with trauma teams on a single application. Results at your fingertips mean a patient’s Rapid results and preview source images are available to help make better transfer decisions.
