Stroke is the number 5 cause of death in the USA.  In order for a Stroke patient to have the best possible outcome they must receive the proper prehospital care, rapid transportation to an appropriate Stroke Ready hospital, and proper interventions and/or transfer to a Primary Stroke Center if needed.  This can only happen when all aspects of the patients care function within a cohesive system of care.
