The North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative, formerly know as the NC Collaborative Stroke Registry, is a national effort funded by the CDC to reduce the incidence of death and disability caused by stroke. One of six Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registries, the North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative assesses the use of best practice guidelines for stroke treatment by conducting real-time data collection on stroke treatment within North Carolina hospitals. Using these data, hospitals are able to measure and improve the quality of patient care.
The goals of the North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative are to:
- Evaluate the current state of stroke care in North Carolina
- Facilitate quality of stroke care improvements in NC hospitals
- Build a foundation for a state-wide stroke registry
