    • Description:
      Each year, more than 700,000 Americans suffer from a stroke; about 25% of them die at the time of the event or soon after, and 15%–30% of survivors remain permanently disabled. More than 1 million Americans and their families live with the disabling effects of stroke. In 2001, Congress charged CDC with implementing state-based registries to track acute stroke care and to use data from the registries to improve the quality of that care. Congress named the registry the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry (PCNASR) after the late U.S. Senator Paul Coverdell of Georgia, who suffered a fatal stroke in 2000 while serving in Congress.

      The mission of the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry is to

      • Measure, track, and improve the quality of care for acute stroke patients

      • Increase public awareness of stroke treatment and prevention

      • Through secondary prevention, decrease the rate of premature death and disability from acute stroke

      • Reduce disparities in acute stroke care by providing underserved populations with better access to high-quality care.
