Objective: In this study, we retrospectively analyzed 795 AIS patients who received intravenous alteplase for thrombolytic therapy in one third-class hospital or three second-class hospitals in Dongyang City and sought to evaluate the effects of the medical community model on intravenous alteplase door-to-needle time (DNT) and prognosis of patients with acute ischemic stroke.
Methods: According to whether the medical community model is established or not, 303 AIS patients (204 cases from the third-class hospital and 99 cases from three second-class hospitals) were assigned to control group unavailable to the medical community model and 492 AIS patients (297 cases from the third-class hospital, and 195 cases from three second-class hospitals) into observational group available to the medical community model.
Results: A higher thrombolysis rate, a shorter DNT, more patients with DNT ≤ 60 min and DNT ≤ 45 min, a shorter ONT, lower National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) scores at 24 h, 7 d, 14 d, and modified Rankin scale (mRS) scores at 3 months after thrombolytic therapy, a shorter length of hospital stay, and less hospitalization expense were found in the observational group than the control group.
