UnityPoint Health® – Trinity Bettendorf has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. The award recognizes the health system’s commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence. 

UnityPoint Health – Trinity Bettendorf earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These measures include evaluation of the proper use of medications and other stroke treatments aligned with the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients. Before discharge, patients should also receive education on managing their health, get a follow-up visit scheduled, as well as other care transition interventions.

“UnityPoint Health – Trinity is dedicated to improving the quality of care for our community and our stroke patients, and implementing this initiative helps us to do just that,” said Paula Maddox, UnityPoint Health – Trinity Stroke Coordinator. “The tools and resources help us track and measure our success in meeting evidenced-based clinical guidelines developed to improve patient outcomes.”

UnityPoint Health – Trinity Bettendorf additionally received the Association’s Type II Diabetes Honor Roll award. To qualify for this recognition, hospitals must meet quality measures developed with more than 90 percent compliance for 12 consecutive months for the “Overall Diabetes Cardiovascular Initiative Composite Score.”

“We are pleased to recognize UnityPoint Health – Trinity for its commitment to stroke care,” said Lee H. Schwamm, M.D., national chairperson of the Quality Oversight Committee and Executive Vice Chair of Neurology, Director of Acute Stroke Services, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts. “Research has shown that hospitals adhering to clinical measures through the Get With The Guidelines quality improvement initiative can often see fewer readmissions and lower mortality rates.” 

According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke is the fifth highest cause of death in adults and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States. On average, someone in the U.S. suffers a stroke every 40 seconds and nearly 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.
