LaBresh, Kenneth A.; Tyler, Patricia A.

Collapse Box


This article presents a collaborative model for hospital-based cardiovascular secondary prevention. The model employs a stake holder consortium to provide hospitals with a unified approach to improve care and conform to regulatory requirements. Hospital teams use a Web-based tool that embeds data collection in the process of care and supports rapid cycle improvement. Recognition of participation and achievement by the American Heart Association helps to obtain administrative support for the program.
