AR SAVES (Stroke Assistance through Virtual Emergency Support)

AR SAVES, led by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Center for Distance Health, presents an innovative solution to a complex, statewide problem.

AR SAVES is a state-wide stroke management system that links emergency room doctors at participating hospitals to specially-trained vascular neurologists via live, two-way video, 24-hours a day. This partnership ensures the effective administration of a quality-of-life-saving drug that significantly improves the chances of recovery while reducing permanent, stroke-related disability, and quite possibly, mortality.

Hospitals selected to participate in AR SAVES are equipped with telemedicine technology, training for personnel, support for a dedicated telestroke coordinator and ongoing education.
