Missouri has enacted laws that creates the Time Critical Diagnosis System through which emergency medical care is provided for patients who experience trauma, stroke, or STEMI, a potentially fatal form of heart attack. All of these conditions require quick assessment, diagnosis and treatment by a facility that can provide timely, definitive care to minimize risk for preventable complications and death.
Missouri’s Goal: To improve health outcomes by establishing a Time Critical Diagnosis system for Missourians who suffer acute trauma, stroke, or ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
Thank you to the Missouri Foundation for Health for their support and leadership throughout the TCD development process.
