Participate in the Mission!
MISSION: LIFELINE® is the American Heart Association's national initiative to advance the SYSTEM OF CARE for patients with acute, high-risk time sensitive life and/or quality of life threatening disease states, such as ST Elevate Myocardial Infarction (STEMI Heart Attack), Non-ST Elevated Myocardial Infarction (NSTEMI Heart Attack), Stroke and Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest. The overarching goals of Mission: Lifeline are to bring stakeholders together in a collaborative manner and to reduce mortality and morbidity for these patients while improving overall quality of care and patient outcomes.
"Mission: Lifeline helps with the biggest goal of keeping patients out of the hospital with preventative care."
Vanessa Cambria-Mengel Chest Pain Center Coordinator
System of Care

The system of care should include, but is not limited to, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Receiving Centers and Referring Hospitals.
