Quality Improvement Initiatives
One of the many ways we promote healthier lives is by supporting healthcare professionals’ quest for continuous quality improvement. Our suite of quality programs puts up-to-date treatment guidelines, tools and resources to work in hospitals and outpatient practices across the nation.
Get With The Guidelines® is a program that helps ensure consistent application of the most recent American Heart Association/American Stroke Association scientific guidelines for patient treatment. The program includes in-hospital modules for heart failure, stroke and resuscitation as well as a program for outpatient practices. Visitwww.heart.org/getwiththeguidelinesfor more information.
