Kennewick, Wash. – Trios Health has received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines Target: Stroke Honor Roll Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award.
The award recognizes Trios’ commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.
Trios earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These measures include evaluation of the proper use of medications and other stroke treatments aligned with the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients. Before discharge, patients should also receive education on managing their health, get a follow-up visit scheduled, as well as other care transition interventions.
The American Heart Association and American Stroke Association will recognize this achievement through its annual hospital recognition campaign, which will include an advertisement in the U.S. News and World Report Best Hospital Edition, and at its annual Quality Achievement Awards Ceremonies.
They will also present the award to Trios in person later this summer.
