Get With The Guidelines®: Turning Guidelines into Lifelines

The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association are committed to helping patients and their families get the best possible health care for heart disease and stroke.

We do this by funding extensive research, converting the findings into treatment guidelines, and then creating programs like Get With The Guidelines to help hospitals adhere to those guidelines.

We are committed to helping heart disease and stroke patients live longer, stronger lives... turning guidelines into lifelines. 

Get With The Guidelines was the first hospital-based program to receive the prestigious Innovation in Prevention Award from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
