Cardiac Systems of Care

Hospitals referring and receiving heart attack patients have specific roles in the heart attack system of care, as defined in the recent policy statement from the American Heart Association. Each player in the broader system of care should be as prepared as possible to collaboratively perform evidence-based, lifesaving treatment.
