Mission:Lifeline - Great Rivers Affiliate

The American Heart Association developed Mission: Lifeline to transform care for the most vulnerable patients – those with high-risk time-sensitive emergencies including heart attacks, strokes and cardiac arrest. Delivering the best possible care in these critical situations requires that all of the components of care - from the onset of the emergency all the way through hospital discharge and the start of secondary prevention - work quickly and seamlessly. 


To accomplish this, Mission: Lifeline focuses on helping communities and regions form effective coalitions of hospitals, ambulance services, non-transport medical first response agencies, emergency communications centers, emergency medical service regulatory / medical direction agencies, local government, local media, and payers. An effective, efficient system of care saves and improves lives.
