Mission Statement
The Council on Quality of Care and Outcomes Research provides a forum for a multidisciplinary group of volunteers committed to making a substantial contribution to reducing the burden of heart disease and stroke through improving healthcare quality and patient outcomes.

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association quality improvement programs serve to empower healthcare facilities and their professionals provide quality health care. Together, one patient at a time, we can build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. To learn more, visit heart.org/myhealthcare.
