RWJF's Quality Stories

Each month, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation releases "The Quality Report," an e-newsletter which provides a monthly report from their Quality/Equality program area. One of the highlights each month is the "Voices of Quality" segment - an opportunity to hear from a health care provider about what works.

This month's segment actually featured a video: Learn how the team at Memorial Hospital in Broward County, Florida, reduced emergency department door-to-balloon time for heart attack patients and saved lives while participating in an RWJF-sponsored quality improvement initiative. In the first year of the program, door-to-balloon time improved by 60 percent. Now the hospital routinely hits the 90-minute target for 100 percent of heart attack patients.
