California Acute Stroke Prototype Registry (CASPR) / Development of Prototypes for the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry
Location(s): United States
In 2001, Congress charged CDC with implementing state-based registries that measure and track acute stroke care and to use data from the registries in efforts to improve the quality of that care. Congress further directed that this project be named the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry, after the late U.S. Senator Paul Coverdell of Georgia, who suffered a fatal stroke in 2000 while serving in Congress.
