Mission Lifeline: Montana

Two female EMTs

Mission: Lifeline helps identify the gaps that lead to slower and less effective patient care, and with the providers in Montana, closes those gaps through change in protocols and processes, and also in providing resources such as life-saving equipment.

Mission: Lifeline® is the American Heart Association's national initiative to advance the system of care for patients with acute, high-risk time sensitive life and/or quality of life threatening disease states, such as ST Elevate Myocardial Infarction (STEMI Heart Attack), Non-ST Elevated Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI Heart Attack), Stroke and Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest. The overarching goals of Mission: Lifeline are to bring stakeholders together in a collaborative manner and to reduce mortality and morbidity for these patients while improving overall quality of care and patient outcomes.
