North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative
As one of the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registries, the North Carolina Stroke Care Collaborative (NCSCC) is part of a national effort to reduce the incidence of death and disability caused by stroke. The NCSCC assesses the use of best practice guidelines for stroke treatment by conducting real time data collection on stroke treatment within North Carolina hospitals. Using these data, hospitals are able to measure and improve the quality of patient care.
The goals of the NCSCC are to:
Evaluate the current state of stroke care in North Carolina
Facilitate quality of stroke care improvements in North Carolina hospitals
Build a foundation for a statewide stroke registry
