"The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association are delighted to surpass the one million patient mark with Get With The Guidelines-Stroke," said Lee Schwamm, M.D., volunteer chairman of the national Get With The Guidelines steering committee. "Published studies have confirmed the benefits to patients when their hospital participates in Get With The Guidelines-Stroke, and we're eager to expand the program's benefits to more patients nationwide. This accomplishment demonstrates the power of translating evidence-based care into user-friendly tools for healthcare providers."
