STEMI-receiving hospitals have the expertise, equipment, facilities and other resources to administer percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), within the STEMI system of care. Nonetheless, they still face challenges, and improvements can be made for more seamless interaction with other healthcare providers within the STEMI system.
Mission: Lifeline helps STEMI-receiving centers leverage the capabilities of emergency medical services (EMS) and non-PCI hospitals for optimum treatment of STEMI patients. By working together under a shared set of guidelines and closing communication gaps about patient outcomes, the professionals within a STEMI system of care can save lives and improve the health of the communities they serve.
