This summary report presents an overview of the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry program and six vignettes of specific programmatic strategies and activities employed by states funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) during 2007–2012 to work with hospitals to improve the quality of stroke care across their state. The selected themes were identified and compiled from a review of existing program data sources, such as state annual progress reports and data submitted to CDC on performance measures for the quality of stroke care, and from ongoing discussions with state program staff. Each vignette highlights the level of improvement in stroke care practices (as indicated by performance measure data), the strategies determined to have contributed to the success of the state stroke registry program, how states overcame challenges, and relevant lessons learned. The lessons learned across each of the six states were to
• Gain a higher level of buy-in from hospital administration, clinicians, and emergency medical services.
• Maintain high-quality data.
• Enable hospitals to incentivize and individualize their quality improvement efforts. Facilitate networking and resource sharing between hospitals.
• Foster diverse partnerships to sustain improvements in stroke care.
This report provides information that individual states can use to foster communication and collaboration with other states, with hospital systems, and with communities to improve timely treatment and coordinated care for stroke.
