    The UNC School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology will support the work of the North Carolina Stroke Care Collaboration (NCSCC) by assuming primary responsibility for the establishment and maintenance of a hospital based stroke registry focused on data collection concurrent with care. We will work with participating hospitals by providing continuous and intermittent feedback on performance of quality of care measures and monitoring the quality and use of data collected for quality improvement interventions with the goal of enhancing the quality of stroke care that they provide. In addition, we will support the NCSCC in recruitment of new hospital sites and the retention of all sites, ensure the migration of revisions throughout the data process, provide training on the integrated database system, assure high quality of the data and the reporting functions, assure the timely transmittal of accurate data to the CDC each quarter, provide analysis of data, and the publication of findings.
