The mission of the Stroke Stemi Program- Quality of Care.
Coordinating care for patients through multidisciplinary teams offers many benefits to both patients and hospitals. When patients' needs are supported by a group of experts working together, they receive higher quality care; when patients receive higher quality care, there is a reduced chance for adverse events or readmissions. One area of care delivery that is particularly in need of coordinated care is stroke care, as "time is brain" - every second lost can mean lost brain tissue.
