CVO and CORC Lead the D2B Alliance
26 April 2007 - 17:43
CVO and CORC investigators are leading efforts to reduce door to balloon times through the D2B Alliance. The D2B Alliance is a national campaign of the American College of Cardiology in collaboration with the American Heart Association, the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and 33 other organizations.
The D2B Alliance is taking research and translating it into practice with the goal of getting hospitals nationwide (and beyond) to treat patients within 90 minutes of presentation to the hospital. Thus far more than 850 hospitals have joined the effort.
This project realizes the vision of CVO and CORC to produce scholarship and see it make a difference in people’s lives.
See the D2B Alliance web site for more details.
