Time is the major determinant in successful reperfusion therapy of acute ischemic stroke. The evolving diagnostic tools and treatment of acute stroke has made a great progress in the past 2 decades and is remolding current management practices. It demands a timely neurologic evaluation and a neuroimaging study to determine if stroke patients are appropriate candidates for reperfusion demands. Therefore, it is critical for the setting of stroke center accreditation levels and capabilities so that timely and appropriate treatment is initiated for the eligible stroke patients. Optimal acute ischemic stroke treatment requires all levels of stroke center network operating efficiently. In the future, Taiwan should revise the criteria of stroke center accreditation and set up the efficient acute stroke treatment network as soon as possible.
