Application: Jan 14, 2022

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.

  1. Before discharge, it is communicated to patients that they may receive an at-home visit
  2. After discharge, the hospital stroke coordinator (or designated individual) refers the patient to the partner EMS agency
  3. The EMS agency conducts the at-home visit and collects all information on the MIH project form within 30 days of discharge
  4. This information is shared with the hospital through secure file transfer
  5. Data is entered into the Get with the Guidelines® stroke registry tool by the designated hospital to enhance and improve data collection

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.)
