The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) entered into collaboration on the nationally recognized Get With The GuidelinesSM (GWTG) Registry program as the state’s standardized data registry. The Nevada Stroke Registry collaboration intends to provide Nevada acute care hospitals with necessary tools to view statewide, aggregated data and implement change in their health care systems to improve patient outcomes and quality of care.

Nevada Stroke Registry: 2016 Data Summary
Legislation passed in the 78th Session of the Nevada Legislature, Senate Bill 196 (SB 196), requires DPBH to establish a stroke registry, provides for the inclusion of comprehensive and primary stroke centers on a list maintained by DPBH, and specifies required reporting of certain data by those centers. Support for SB 196 was provided by partners such as the AHA/ASA, Nevada Hospital Association, and Nevada Rural Hospital Partnership.
