Get With The Guidelines and The Joint Commission are synonymous with the highest standards in quality healthcare.

Developed in collaboration with the American Stroke Association, The Joint Commission's Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers recognizes centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care.  Achieving certification signifies that the services these hospitals provide have the critical elements to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes.  It is the best signal to the community that the quality care they provide is effectively managed to meet the unique and specialized needs of stroke patients.  Demonstrating compliance with these national standards and performance measurement expectations may help obtain contracts from employers and purchasers concerned with controlling costs and improving productivity. GWTG-Stroke is in alignment with the stroke performance measures as prescribed by The Joint Commission and can be used to satisfy some of the program criteria.
