Coverdell Stroke Program

Coverdell Sub Page Image

The Ohio Coverdell Stroke Program is a data-driven quality improvement program for stroke treatment. We provide quality improvement resources to hospital stroke teams and other healthcare providers to reduce the number of Ohioans who die from or are disabled by stroke.

Goals: To achieve the triple aim of better health, improved quality and reduced costs, the Ohio Coverdell Stroke Program is committed to improving the quality of stroke patients’ hospital care and care transitions after hospital discharge. The program's goal is to ultimately reduce all-cause hospital readmission rates among patients discharged with stroke.

Data Platforms: Our quality improvement work is based on hospital treatment data that is reported in Get With the Guidelines®-Stroke, which is a nationwide stroke data collection and reporting platform recommended by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA).

Funding: Coverdell is funded by a federal grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) to 9 state health departments, including the Ohio Department of Health. 

The CDC Coverdell Web page is Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry.
