The Wisconsin Mobile Integrated Health (MIH) for COVID-19
and Stroke Program offers funding to provide in-home,
post-stroke discharge follow-up with a goal of reducing
additional strokes and COVID-19 infections. The focus is
on populations disproportionately impacted by stroke
morbidity and mortality and those with higher risk of
COVID-19 infections, including racial and ethnic minority
populations and rural communities.
The initiative involves at-home visits, by EMS
professionals, to stroke patients within 30 days of their discharge from the hospital.
- Before discharge, it is communicated to patients that
they may receive an at-home visit
- After discharge, the hospital stroke coordinator (or
designated individual) refers the patient to the partner
- The EMS agency conducts the at-home visit and
collects all information on the MIH project form within
30 days of discharge
- This information is shared with the hospital through
secure file transfer
- Data is entered into the
Get with the Guidelines® stroke registry tool by
the designated hospital to enhance and improve data
Eligible applicants are Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
agencies in Wisconsin with an established and documented
relationship with a local hospital that has an existing
license for Get with the Guidelines® for stroke, or
agrees to initiate such a license by the start of the
project period. (Project funding involves reimbursement
for a new or existing license for the 12-month period of
the project, with an additional 12 months of access
pending satisfaction of project requirements.)
Amount of funding
Award range per site: $3,000 - $30,000
