Mission: Lifeline® Report Updates
January 31, 2017
The Q3 2016 Mission: Lifeline Hospital and Regional Reports have been posted and are now available via the NCDR website.
Updates to the Q3 2016 Mission: Lifeline STEMI Receiving Center Reports include the following:
  • Mission: Lifeline has expanded to include NSTEMI  and has 5 NSTEMI Measures that are analyzed and reported in the Mission: Lifeline Receiving Center reports.  Hospitals have the opportunity to achieve Mission: Lifeline STEMI and/or Mission: Lifeline NSTEMI recognition.
  • Mission: Lifeline EMS FMC to PCI Measure - EMS Non-System Reason for Delay has been added as an exclusion when EMS FMC to PCI > 90 Minutes.
    • Additional Information regarding EMS FMC to PCI - When there is an EMS Non-System Reason For Delay or a Non-System reason for delay documented, and EMS FMC to PCI is within 90 minutes, that patient record remains in the denominator of the measure, so long as all other inclusion criteria are met.
  • Aspirin within 24 hours of Arrival and AHA on Discharge - Exclusions include patients who received warfarin, dibigatran, rivaroxaban or apixaban at home and/or at discharge.
