The authors explored the effect of establishing a WeChat platform for a chest pain center as a medium to increase the treatment speed and improve the prognosis of patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI).
The application of a WeChat platform significantly shortened the door-to-balloon time of patients receiving PPCI and increased the standard door-to-balloon time achievement rate for patients with STEMI. In addition, the platform is also conducive to integrating medical resources and sharing medical information. The establishment of the platform increased the treatment speed and improved the prognosis of patients with STEMI.
