Stroke Care: National Quality Improvement Goals
(Higher numbers are better)

Anticoagulation Therapy for Atrial Fibrillation/Flutter - Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal heart rhythm that puts people at greater risk of developing blood clots. This measure reports how many ischemic stroke patients received anticoagulant medication upon discharge.

Antithrombotic medication by end of hospital day 2 - The Joint Commission requires stroke patients to have received medication to prevent blood clots by the 2nd day of their hospitalization.

 

Assessed for rehabilitation - Rehabilitation is a vital part of stroke recovery. Following a stroke, all patients should be assessed for an appropriate rehabilitation program.

 

Discharged on antithrombotics therapy - Patient discharged on drugs that prevent the formation of blood clots.

 
Discharged on statin medication - Cholesterol can cause plaque build-up in arteries, reducing blood flow to the brain and raising the risk of stroke. Certain medications can lower cholesterol and help control stroke risk.  
Stroke Education - Patients given education on risk factors and how they can prevent more strokes from happening.

Thrombolytic therapy administered - Percentage of patients that receive medications that will help prevent more blood clots from forming.

 

VTE Prophylaxis - Stroke patients who receive treatment for the prevention of blood clots on the day of or day after hospital admission.
