Michigan Stroke Registry & Quality Improvement Program
Paul Coverdell Stroke Registry
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has approved Michigan’s continuation with the Paul Coverdell Stroke Registry. This three year continuation program will be entitled “Michigan’s Ongoing Stroke Registry to Accelerate Improvement of Care” (MOSAIC) and will immediately follow the very successful Michigan Stroke Registry and Quality Improvement Program (MiSRQIP).
MOSAIC will continue the inpatient stroke registry, and add surveillance and quality improvement efforts to enhance the transition of care to the post hospital setting. Henry Ford Hospital and McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital will be piloting the transition of care program for the first year, with expansion to other participating hospitals in years two and three.

American Heart Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and 35 hospitals representing a
cross section of Michigan.
