Stroke-08: Emergency Department Diagnosed Stroke Identified by Prehospital Stroke Assessment


Description

Measures the percentage of emergency department diagnosed stroke patients who had a positive stroke assessment by EMS

Numerator

Patients with a positive stroke assessment

Denominator

Patients with emergency department diagnosed stroke transported by EMS originating from a 911 request

Rationale

Stroke assessments using prehospital stroke assessment tools can screen for stroke and affect patient destinations. Using hospital data, this measure identified the number of actual strokes that were either falsely assessed or not assessed using a prehospital stroke scale

Pseudocode Numerator

eSituation.11 Provider’s Primary Impression contains ('433.*’,'I60.*','I61.*’,'I63.*’,'I65.*’,'I66.*’,'I67.*')
OR
eSituation.12 Provider’s Secondary Impression contains ('433.*’,'I60.*','I61.*’,'I63.*’,'I65.*’,'I66.*’,'I67.*')

Pseudocode Denominator

WHERE eOutcomes.10 =
'433.*’,'I60.*','I61.*’,'I63.*’,'I65.*’,'I66.*’,'I67.*' WHERE eResponse.05 - Type of Service Requested = 2205001 - 911 Response (Scene)
