Doctors Hospital of Manteca is utilizing Artificial Intelligence technology.

AI is being used to elevate the care of its stroke patients. Doctors Hospital of Manteca recently began implementing a diagnosis-to-action technology that features such technology in giving its teams the ability to diagnose stroke patients with Large Vessel Occlusion within minutes of the CT scan being completed.

This provides the local the hospital with faster treatments and interventions, which may have a significant impact on outcomes and mortality.

“This technology enables us to extend the broader use of AI and increase access to lifesaving treatments for our neuro and stroke patients,” said Paul Bhangu, Director of Imaging Services at Doctors Hospital of Manteca. “With stroke, every minute matters and timely diagnosis and treatment are critical.

“By incorporating this platform into our team’s neurological workflow, we’ll be able to expedite care for these patients, potentially limiting disability and saving lives.”

According to DHM, stroke patients, historically, would undergo complex brain imaging, which was downloaded to imaging systems and portals.

The stroke team would then review those images and communicate amongst each other to come up with a plan.

AI technology has the ability to quickly review those images and alert the different providers on the team if an LVO is present.

The new AI platform allows the stroke team to communicate rapidly and efficiently, helping to expedite care and improve outcomes.

The tools are HIPAA compliant and available to the stroke care team via cell phones or tablets.

Care teams using the platform can potentially save critical minutes, or even hours, in the triage, diagnosis and treatment of strokes and other disease states.

The hospital works with to implement the AI technology in the coordination of stroke care.

“We developed the Platform to help health systems and hospitals coordinate care in real time across the whole clinical team,” said Jayme Strauss, chief clinical officer at “We are excited to partner with Doctors Hospital of Manteca to enable a new era of synchronized care, advancing the ability for patients to get to the right doctor at exactly the right time.”
