Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Program

The Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Program (Coverdell Program) funds state health departments to collect, measure, and track data to improve the quality of care for stroke patients. Since 2005, the Coverdell Program has reached more than 1 million stroke patients in almost 800 hospitals.

The Coverdell Program works to ensure that all Americans receive the highest quality of care for stroke, a leading cause of death and long-term disability, by supporting coordinated stroke systems of care. In an effective stroke system of care, patient care and quality improvement is monitored from the time they have a stroke, through emergency medical services transport to the hospital, during in-hospital care, and through their discharge from the hospital to outpatient care.
