Question: Will the new AHA recommendation of expasion of the time window for treatment wiht tPA be included in TJC measures/STK4?

The AHA release new recommendations that impact tPA evaluation and available time of administration. Will these new recommendations impact the measures for TJC?

Answer:

Any revisions to the current measures will be publicized on our website under the "Performance Measurement" tab. Since the guidelines from AHA were revised just 2 business days ago, any possible revision to the stroke measures will take some time to implement and publicize. For now, the measures remain as currently published.
