When talking about regional systems of care, we need a plan an a process for EVERY heart attack patient regardless of how they enter the system. According to the Wall Street Journal, if you have a heart attack in a hospital, it is safer to go outside and call 911 from the parking lot. Why? Because there’s a process for EMS. Unfortunately, 1/2 of STEMI patients come to the hospital by other means.

In this talk, Dr. Paul Banerjee walks through how one hospital decreased their DTB times by 15% with greater results on the horizon.
