Currently, stroke patients are transported to the nearest stroke center. Many factors, including the spatial variation in population density, the stroke's severity, the time since stroke onset, and the congestion level at the receiving stroke center are not considered in the current protocol. We develop an analytical framework that enriches the stroke transport decision-making process by incorporating these factors. Applying our framework to the city of Montreal Stroke Network, we show that adopting a triage strategy leads to significantly improved health outcomes.
