When it comes to treating strokes, hospitals are increasingly under the gun to develop more aggressive internal initiatives that reduce the time it takes to provide the latest
life-saving care. Of the more than 700,000 new or recurrent stroke cases diagnosed annually, it is estimated that 80% could be effectively treated if the clot-busting drug, tPA,
is used within the required three-hour timeframe, according to the American Heart Association.
