STROKE DESIGNATED HOSPITAL: Q1/Q2 2014 RAC/CVD Stroke/STEMI Data Collection Project
STROKE DESIGNATED HOSPITAL Data TSA-E
NOTE: Submit ONLY 1 survey for your hospital and ONLY if your hospital is not participating in American Heart Association Get With the Guidelines Stroke Program.
The purpose of data collection among the Regional Advisory Councils (RACs) is to enhance surveillance of the stroke and STEMI systems of care in Texas. RACs will collect and report data to the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section (HPCDPS) of DSHS and HPCDPS will analyze the data and report results of the analyses to RACs and the Texas Council on Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke. DSHS is asking RAC leadership, RAC Chairs or RAC Directors and, if applicable, Stroke Committee Chairs and Cardiac Committee Chairs, to work with key stakeholders such as Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and hospitals in their regions to complete this survey. If you are not able to complete the survey, we ask that you forward the original survey link to the appropriate person in your hospital.
Information must be entered into every area to move forward to the next question. If possible, please provide the most accurate and complete data.
If there is a data point for which you cannot feasibly report data, you may report “0” with an explanation of the barriers and suggestions for future data collection.
EXCLUSION CRITERIA: Exclude inpatient strokes and exclude patients admitted for the sole purpose of a scheduled procedure.
