A life saving initiative

A Life-Saving Initiative

  • National, community-based initiative

  • Goals

    • Improve quality of care and outcomes in heart attack patients

    • Improve health care system readiness and response

Mission lifeline class 1 recommendation

Mission Lifeline: Class 1 Recommendation

Improving the system of care for stemi patients

This will revolutionize heart attack patient care in SD – we currently have one of the highest STEMI death rates in the US according to the CDC.

This project is designed to produce a “model system” that can then be implemented across the Midwest and nation, making SD a leader in heart attack systems of care.

April, 2010 The Leona M and Harry B Helmsley Foundation gave $8.4 million to the AHA to develop a cutting edge state wide STEMI system of care!!!!

What does mission lifeline mean for south dakota

What does Mission: Lifeline mean for South Dakota?

Mission: Lifeline is the American Heart Association's national initiative to advance the systems of care for patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). The overarching goal of the initiative is to reduce mortality and morbidity for STEMI patients and to improve their overall quality of care.

The uniqueness of mission lifeline

The Uniqueness of Mission: Lifeline

  • Mission: Lifeline will:

    • Promote the ideal STEMI systems of care

    • Help STEMI patients get the life-saving care they need in time

    • Bring together healthcare resources into an efficient, synergistic system

    • Improve overall quality of care

  • The initiative is unique in that it:

    • Addresses the continuum of care for STEMI patients

    • Preserves a role for the local STEMI-referral hospital

    • Understands the issues specific to rural communities

    • Promotes different solutions/protocols for rural vs. urban/suburban areas

    • Recognizes there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution

    • Knows the issues of implementing national recommendations on a community level

What it means to sd

What it means to SD?

Successful implementation of Mission: Lifeline will mean that South Dakota will have:

  • One of the most advanced, if not the most advanced, coordinated heart attack systems of care in the United States

  • The highest percentage of ambulance services in the nation equipped with 12-lead ECGs

  • The highest percentage of 12-lead ECG-trained emergency medical technicians in the nation

  • The highest percentage of ambulance services transmitting 12- lead ECG results in the nation

Ems training materials

EMS Training & Materials

How will the grant work

How will the grant work?

  • Each EMS agency will be contacted by me for their allotted number of heart monitors they will receive.

    • EMS agencies should evaluate the 3 vendors for 12-leads now

  • Each hospital will be contacted by me for their allotted funds for 12-lead receiving as well as the data component

    • Hospitals should work with their local EMS as they choose their 12-lead vendors

      • Each EMS agency and Hospital needs to fill out a W-9 to be set up as a vendor with the AHA to receive their funds

      • Each EMS agency and hospital will need to sign an agreement

      • Monies will be distributed to the EMS, EMS will pay the vendor

      • Education component will come to every hospital, every EMAT in the state
