Are you getting the highest quality of healthcare?
Visits to a hospital or healthcare provider can be confusing. All the forms, medical lingo and procedures can keep you from stopping to think about an important, basic question: Am I getting quality care?
The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) want to make that question easier to answer and help you find AHA-Accredited hospitals near you.
AHA’s Get With The Guidelines helps improve patient outcomes
For more than a decade we’ve worked with healthcare providers and facilities across the nation to help make sure patients get proven, quality treatment every time. Our Get With The Guidelines® programs provide hospital teams with the most up-to-date research-based clinical guidelines for heart and stroke care. Studies have shown that consistent use of these guidelines increases survival rates and lowers patients’ risk of ending back up in the hospital. Since 2001, Get With The Guidelines programs have touched the lives of more than 4 million patients.
