|Developed for the specific purpose of aiding in the reduction of strokes, the Stroke RiskTM system performs immediate evaluations of individuals and determines their likelihood of a stroke over a given amount of time.
Specifically, the system which was developed in conjunction with the National Stroke Association, scans documents that have been quickly and easily completed by individuals. A series of stroke risk algorithms are applied to the data and the results are auto-generated in a custom, personalized, clear and concise letter to either the person, their physician or both. In addition, appropriate information related to risk reduction for behaviors specific to that individual are also included as well as numbers to call for additional information.
The customized nature of the information is very well received by individuals participating. The system serves not only to identify their specific risk factors, but also to raise their level of awareness of stroke, the warning signs and specific things they can do to decrease their individual stroke risk.
