AHA's Mission: Lifeline® STEMI and ACC Working Together
ACC Accreditation Services and the American Heart Association have a shared vision of improved consistency in the treatment of patients with a ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Together the organizations launched the Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Accreditation program. This alliance changes the way STEMI patients are reperfused by breaking down the silos that exist between care providers. This is accomplished by bringing together physicians, nurses, emergency medical service providers, and hospital teams to refine and eliminate barriers that prevent the best clinical outcomes.
