Updated:Aug 11,2017


To support participation in Mission: Lifeline and cardiovascular quality improvement, the American Heart Association is pleased to once again, offer Get with the Guidelines-CAD (GWTG-CAD). GWTG-CAD was the American Heart Association's premier AMI registry from 2005-2010. Effective April 7, 2017, GWTG-CAD is once again live and available as a tool to track AMI process data. GWTG-CAD is now the primary data source for Mission: Lifeline program data. New and existing participants in the Mission: Lifeline program should enroll directly with AHA for no charge through 2017.
