ctitioners in caring for heart attack and heart failure patients," Yancy said. "Quality improvement initiatives such as the suite of the American Heart Association's Get With The Guidelines programs provide a ready solution to help hospitals and healthcare providers follow these guidelines demonstrated to improve care. We know that best outcomes are realized when the best quality of care is provided."

"Hospitals participating in Get With The Guidelines have shown substantial improvements in the use of evidence-based, guideline-recommended therapies for patients with heart attack and patients with heart failure - including those therapies most closely linked to better 30-day clinical outcomes," said Gregg C. Fonarow, M.D., immediate past chair of the Get With The Guidelines Steering Committee and professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of California Los Angeles.

"However, there are still many hospitals that are not participating in quality improvement programs and, as this new study demonstrates, there remain substantial opportunities to improve care and reduce variation in the clinical outcomes for heart attack and heart failure patients nationwide," Fonarow said.
