Riverview Health has received the American College of Cardiology’s NCDR ACTION Registry–GWTG Platinum Performance Achievement Award for 2015. Riverview Health is one of only 319 hospitals nationwide to receive this prestigious honor.
“This award is a direct reflection of our hardworking Heart & Vascular team members and their commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients,” said Tammi Nash, clinical operations director at Riverview Health Heart & Vascular.
To achieve this award, a certain level of treatment guidelines had to be implemented for eight consecutive quarters. Riverview Health was also able to meet a performance standard of 90 percent for specific performance measures. The implementation of these guidelines requires successful coordination of the Heart & Vascular team and emergency personnel, and it’s a critical step in saving the lives and improving outcomes of heart attack patients.
