Get With The Guidelines

hospital administrator team

Get With The Guidelines® (GWTG) is a hospital-based quality improvement initiative created by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Stroke Association (ASA). The goal of this initiative is to improve the care of patients with cardiac diseases and stroke while supporting the AHA mission to reduce death and disability due to cardiovascular diseases and stroke. It is evidence-based and founded on the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Guidelines for secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases and is designed to help health care providers consistently treat patients in accordance with these accepted guidelines.

The Registry Partners GWTG project team can complete all registry operations to include data abstraction, validation for your interrater reliability reporting needs, and detailed reporting of opportunities for improvement for the following Get With the Guidelines Registries:

  • GWTG – Stroke
  • GWTG – Heart Failure
  • GWTG – Resuscitation
  • GWTG – AFib
  • GWTG – Coronary Artery Disease 

More than 2,000 hospitals in the United States participate in at least one of the Get With The Guidelines registries. In October of 2019, the participating hospitals began having the option to voluntarily publicly report data.
