We're teaming up with the University of Miami for an important research study.The purpose is to evaluate treatment options for patients with mild and rapidly improving stroke symptoms by analyzing data from 100 hospitals participating in the Get With The Guidelines®- Stroke quality program.

  • At least 300 stroke discharges a year
  • Ability to enroll 25-30 patients over two years
  • Good performance on the Get With The Guidelines NIHSS measure
