Neurologist Robert Lata (left) logged in on a laptop computer, reads information loaded on to another computer screen by Robin Shabica, stroke center coordinator for Providence Alaska Medical Center, about a patient being observed for signs of a stroke. Shabica is using one of the hospital's new REACH (remote evaluation of acute ischemic) stroke diagnosis and evaluation system carts. The system allows Lata to use access and use a Webcam on his laptop from any location to visually evaluate patients to determine if they are having a stroke, what kind and how to treat it.
