Launch of Global Atrial Fibrillation Patient Portal on World Stroke Day

On World Stroke Day, Blue Latitude Health announced the launch of Sign Against Stroke, a patient and carer centric online portal for people impacted by atrial fibrillation. It was developed by the Sign Against Stroke Task Force to empower patients and their family members.

Working with the Sign Against Stroke (SAS) Task Force, Blue Latitude Health has created a patient-centric portal to provide information on how to manage Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and help prevent AF-related strokes.



We are pleased to announce the launch of Sign Against Stroke, a patient and carer centric website for people impacted by AF, on World Stroke Day. The website includes downloadable materials developed by the Sign Against Stroke Task Force to empower patients and their family members.

The goal of the new SAS site is to successfully inform and educate people on Atrial Fibrillation, AF-related stroke and the treatment options. The ultimate aim is to empower patients in taking an active role in their health care. 

During development, Blue Latitude Health focused on understanding the needs and learning journey of people impacted by AF and stroke, and also their carers from pre-diagnosis to treatment. The design was based on an appreciation of how people approach coming to terms with their condition, from both a rational and emotional perspective. This meant not only looking at the types of content, but how content was written, presented, and structured. This approach resulted in relevant information being introduced to patients and carers through compelling Sign Against Stroke infographics, which aim to explain complex concepts in a visual, easily digestible form.

Learn more about the Sign Against Stroke portal, the Sign Against Stroke Task Force, and the project on the Blue Latitude Health website.
