"Everyone at Saint Francis is proud of our cardiology staff and their success with GWTG," said Michael Lachina, MD, chief medical officer. "Their hard work has a direct impact everyday on our cardiology patients and their outcomes."
GWTG is an evidence-based program for in-hospital quality improvement. It puts the unparalleled expertise of the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association to work for hospitals nationwide, helping hospital care teams ensure that the care provided coronary artery disease, heart failure and stroke patients is aligned with the latest evidence-based guidelines. The program's goal is to "help hospitals save more lives by optimizing care for coronary artery disease and stroke patients." Those who participate in GWTG have access to the latest evidence-based guidelines and immediate access to clinical decision support, providing an additional resource for medical decision making.
Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis has participated in GWTG for several years and won awards in the past. "From our perspective, our participation in the GWTG program has helped us improve patient outcomes," said David Archer, CEO, "and we very much appreciate all of the hard work that AHA staff have done to help us succeed."
