The NEMAT lab focuses on developing and implementing innovative solutions for preventing fragmentation of care for neuroemergencies, and improving patient centered outcomes. Dr. Dangayach serves as the PI of this lab and believes in leveraging techonology for providing compassionate care from triage to recovery.
