To support participation in Mission: Lifeline and cardiovascular quality improvement, the American Heart Association is pleased to offer Get with the Guidelines-CAD (GWTG-CAD) to track both hospital level and regional level STEMI quality improvement efforts and AMI process improvement activities. GWTG-CAD was the American Heart Association's premier AMI registry from 2005-2010. GWTG-CAD is now the primary data source for Mission: Lifeline program data.
