HMHP and St. E’s Earns American Heart Association’s ‘Get With the Guidelines’ Gold Plus Award
Date:2/4/2013

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (PRWEB) February 04, 2013

St. Elizabeth Health Center has received the Get With the Guidelines® – Heart Failure Gold Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association.

This award recognizes St. Elizabeth for achieving an exceptional goal of treating heart failure patients according to the guidelines of care recommended by the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology.

The recognition marks the second year in a row that St. Elizabeth Health Center has been recognized with a Get With the Guidelines® gold quality achievement award.

Get With the Guidelines® – Heart Failure helps the staff of St. Elizabeth to develop and implement acute and secondary prevention guidelines to improve patient care and outcomes. The program provides hospitals with a web-based patient management tool, best practice discharge protocols and standing orders, along with a robust registry and real-time benchmarking capabilities to track performance.

The quick and efficient use of guideline procedures can improve the quality of care for heart failure patients, save lives and ultimately, reduce healthcare costs by lowering the recurrence of heart attacks.

“St.Elizabeth Health Center is dedicated to making our care for heart failure patients among the best in the country. The American Heart Association’s Get With the Guidelines® – Heart Failure program helps us to accomplish this goal,” observes Mariann Pacak, director of heart and vascular services at St. Elizabeth Health Center. “This recognition demonstrates that we are on the right track and we’re very proud of our team.”

“Recent studies show that patients treated in hospitals participating in the American Heart Association’s Get With the Guidelines® – Heart Failure program receive a higher quality of care and may experience better outcomes,” says Lee H. Schwamm, M.D., chairman of the Get Wit
