“Join gives us a great opportunity to pass on information to all involved groups relatively early in the stroke process, without the need for thousands of phone calls.

We have a platform with Join, where the most important information, such as patient characteristics, stroke severity, time intervals etc. are all automatically available.

We have rolled out Join as a platform in the rescue service. The ambulances can contact us with stroke patients or suspected strokes directly via Join and send us important information. At the same time, we can provide our expertise directly to the patients’ homes and ambulances.”
