Build a team that includes an administrator, physician, nurse, and Cath Lab technicians, that will assist in defining participation goals.

Step 3: Assess and Learn

Hospitals are also strongly encouraged to use the Reduce the Risk: PCI Bleed Facility-Assessment Tool to analyze strengths and identify areas for improvement. All participants have access to regularly-scheduled webinars and a community of experts and like-minded hospitals working to improve bleeding rates and improve outcomes.

Together, you will be working to reduce bleeding adverse events!

Step 4: Improve

Hospitals that join Reduce the Risk: PCI Bleed gain access to a suite of evidence-based tools to help implement best practices to assess patient bleed risk.

A customized Data Dashboard will be available to help hospitals improve their efforts. The online dashboard allows a hospital to not only measure its own success, but also benchmark their progress against other participating hospitals across the country.
