Mission: Lifeline American Heart Association

American Heart Association LogoMission: Lifeline Stroke Montana is an initiative generously funded by the Leona M. & Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust. This $4.8 million investment will build upon the gains achieved by the existing Montana Stroke Initiative. This project transforms stroke care by focusing efforts on connecting all the components of acute stroke care into a smoothly integrated system that reinforces the use of evidence-based guidelines, measures performance, identifies gaps, and engages in improvement projects at a systems level. The stroke system of care begins with community recognition and preparedness to identify stroke and continues all the way through hospital discharge, into rehabilitation. It brings together hospitals, ambulance services, emergency communications centers, emergency medical service regulatory and medical direction agencies, local government, local media, and payers to forge a proactive system of stroke care that saves and improves lives. Mission: Lifeline Stroke will further strengthen the collaboration with stakeholders across the state representing hospitals, individual ambulance services, the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services and others. The project will enhance many critical elements of an optimal stroke system of care, resulting in better outcomes for Montana’s stroke patients.
