The Use of Project UPSTART to build local STEMI Systems of Care.

The Problem: ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI).
The Measurement: Recognition to Reperfusion Time (R2R).
The Goal: Shortening Time to Reperfusion.
The Result: Better Patient Outcomes!
The Tool: Project UPSTART.

During a heart attack, Time = Muscle. Treating STEMI patients faster improves outcomes and saves lives. Project UPSTART is a unique, no-cost quality improvement program that helps hospitals and systems optimize care of their patients and shorten their times to treatment. UPSTART is not a rigid protocol but rather a flexible organizational approach to treatment, helping you get the best results from the resources already available at your institution.
