The Arizona Stroke Collaborative

The Arizona Stroke Collaborative is working to create a comprehensive statewide stroke system of care in conjunction with government, emergency medical systems, hospitals and other health care and rehabilitation services. Our efforts expand on House Bill 2157, passed in 2011, which called for the development of statewide emergency stroke care protocols.
With support and encouragement from the Arizona Department of Health Services, the Arizona Stroke Collaborative formed its statewide organization in 2015. The organization is led by preeminent Arizona stroke care experts, including but not limited to neurologists, hospital stroke center directors and coordinators, nurses, emergency medical experts, rehabilitation specialists, emergency medical system councils, stroke survivors and others from throughout the state.

The Arizona Stroke Collaborative’s work includes researching and evaluating the current levels of stroke care throughout the state, identifying and working to fill gaps in service, providing guidance and expectations on best practices of care, encouraging stroke center designation, improving coordination of care and establishing a stroke care quality improvement management process.
