New Jersey Acute Stroke Registry (NJASR)
With the approval of the New Jersey Stroke Registry Regulations, starting with first quarter 2010 data submissions, all hospitals designated as Primary or Comprehensive Stroke Centers in New Jersey are required to submit data to the New Jersey Acute Stroke Registry (NJASR).
Outcome offers an easy way to fulfill this requirement by providing an extension to the Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Patient Management Tool®.
