Stroke Care QI Initiatives in CAHs

The latest policy brief from the Flex Monitoring Team describes successful evidence-based programs that have been implemented to improve stroke care in critical access and other rural hospitals.

Findings are based on a review of existing literature, a survey of all State Flex Program Coordinators, and interviews with key informants who are implementing stroke care quality improvement initiatives. Identified are eleven different programs currently being implemented, as well as three additional initiatives that are in an early planning phase. The policy brief identifies key elements of these programs, data being collected, and CAH participation.
