The Mission: Lifeline Program was launched in 2007. In 2010, the first Mission: Lifeline data and reports were generated offering participating hospitals much needed feedback on STEMI care initiatives, including STEMI System of Care metrics. Since 2010, much has been accomplished to create, improve and regionalize STEMI Systems of Care across the US. However, significant challenges and opportunities remain (See STEMI Systems of Care Opportunities page).
Mission: Lifeline STEMI data through the years, 2010-2016 show STEMI Systems of Care successes and place a spotlight on the opportunities.
