GWTG-Stroke Data Release Consent:
In order to develop the Performance Improvement component of the MS
Stroke System of Care, all participating hospitals are required to collect data
utilizing AHA’s Get With The Guidelines Stroke data tool.
Quarterly reports will continue to come to each participating hospital submitting
data and, as well, reports will be sent from Quintiles (the company that
synthesizes the data into report form) to MSDH Director of Acute
Care who will be the guarantor of the Super User Account.
Hospitals will be requested to sign a GWTG Stroke Data Release Consent form
thereby acknowledging that the confidential data will be unblinded at the MSDH
Stroke PI Committee. Furthermore, these PI committee members will be
required to sign confidentiality agreements with MSDH.

Process for GWTG-Stroke Enrollment:
New Hospitals must all sign a "Participating Hospital Agreement" (PHA)
Starting May 2014, the standard Stroke & HF PHA is online. Sites should contract for these modules using e-agreements/ePHAs.
PHA Amendment (for EXISTING hospital customers): https://qi.outcome.com/GWTGAmendment.html
PHA (for NEW hospital customers): https://qi.outcome.com/GWTGAgreement.html
While we do not encourage changes to the standard agreement, if a site has red-line changes to the standard PHA, they will need to submit a paper contract. All non-redlined contracts should be submitted online.
Embedded here is a copy of the online PHA that is sent to any hospital that requests a paper copy of their electronic PHA. The document includes a watermark that informs readers that this is a copy and it also omits any signature blocks or hospital information - this copy cannot and should not be mailed in to Quintiles.
If a site would like any amendments to the PHA (i.e. TJC layer, Outpatient Stroke, Meaningful Use) they would need to complete these amendment forms once they have a signed PHA in place (the signed PHA would be via the e-contract assuming no changes have been requested by the site). These amendments are still paper as of May 2014 (the amendments alone would be sent to Quintiles on paper).
