Surviving MI


About Leadership Saves Lives

Leadership Saves Lives was a 2-year intervention in 10 U.S. hospitals to (1) promote uptake of evidence-based strategies associated with better 30-day risk standardized mortality rates (RSMR) for patients with AMI, (2) drive improvements in 5 domains of organizational culture and (3) reduce RSMR.  Leadership Saves Lives is a companion initiative to Surviving MI.

The LSL study, a deep dive into the transformational efforts of 10 hospitals, produced extensive empirical data, as well as numerous practical tools developed by participating hospitals. With the support of The Patrick and Catherine Weldon Donaghue Medical Research Foundation, and in collaboration with the American College of Cardiology and The Mayo Clinic Care Network, we have packaged the lessons learned. The toolkit brings together leading-edge scientific evidence and practical, hospital-driven innovations developed through the intervention.
