The world and how we interact with it is changing at a rapid speed and we can barely keep up. With all the major advancements in technology, including the use of AI in many arenas, it’s amazing to look at how far we’ve come and what the medical advancements can do for us, our health and our longevity.

We’re here with AdventHealth Daytona Beach vascular and interventional neurologist, Vijay Pandav, MD, MPH, to let us in on how AI is helping neurology and stroke patients get better outcomes — and what it means to you and your care when every second counts.

What is Viz.ai?

According to the Viz.ai website, “Viz.ai is the pioneer in the use of AI algorithms and machine learning to increase access to life-saving treatments, covering more than 220 million lives across 1,400+ hospitals and health systems in the U.S. and Europe.”

What does that mean to neuro and stroke patients? Let’s find out more.

“The AI-powered Viz Platform is an intelligent care coordination solution that identifies more patients, informs critical decisions at the point of care, and helps improve outcomes.”

Interview With Dr. Vijay Pandav on Viz.ai

Now, Dr. Pandav is here to walk us through how Viz.ai can benefit you and your health outcomes.

What happens when a consumer arrives at one of our hospitals and gets a scan?

Dr. Pandav: Any patient presenting with stroke symptoms, and if they meet criteria, receive advanced CT imaging at all our AdventHealth facilities. These include CT angiogram and CT perfusion.

Can you tell us about the latest technology you’re utilizing for neuro care?

Dr. Pandav: The advanced images captured by the CT scans are processed rapidly by the latest artificial intelligence technology called Viz.ai.

How is Viz.ai benefitting your patients and how do you see its influence progressing into the future of health care?

Dr. Pandav: Viz.ai is a software that identifies blocked arteries in the brain and alerts the doctors taking care of the patient within minutes via notifications on your phone. This helps the patient get lifesaving treatment sooner. It also helps in stroke care coordination by directing the patient to the right health care facility and improve patient outcomes simultaneously. It really is the future of health care. It’s already here and I foresee it helping a lot of stroke patients live an independent and healthy life.
