In the ideal STEMI system of care,
all parties with a vested interest in the treatment of STEMI patients - from EMS providers to cardiologists, from hospital administrators to policymakers and from third-party payers to the public - share a common belief that quality and timely patient care is the top priority. There is a mutual respect for the critical role of each player in the STEMI system. Individual parties are not out to promote their own self-serving interests. Rather, everyone works together to build a consensus on what the ideal STEMI system looks like for their region, considering its unique challenges.
