Patient Management Tool- Get With The Guidelines (GWTG) compared to Joint Commission

How does the GWTG-Stroke program differ from other programs?

Get With The Guidelines (GWTG)-Stroke Patient Management Tool (PMT) is a product of the American Heart Association / American Stroke Association designed as a data collection tool and database that helps ensure continuous quality improvement of acute stroke treatment and stroke prevention. The Joint Commission Stroke PMT® corresponds with the numerator and denominator statements for stroke performance measures as prescribed by The Joint Commission. Joint Commission's data element definitions and definitions used by GWTG have also been aligned in the Joint Commission Stroke PMT®.
