Monitoring and improving acute stroke care: The North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative.

Journal Article

The North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative is a stroke care quality-improvement (QI) program that provides performance data to hospitals continuously, allowing for rapid feedback and for development of QI initiatives. Between 2005 and 2012, 89,413 stroke cases were enrolled, and the proportion of patients receiving defect-free care improved from 52% to 79%. However, important areas for improvement remain.
