Acute myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure are prevalent conditions in Mississippi associated with significant mortality and morbidity. It is critically important that physicians and hospital staffs work together to implement system and process changes that will facilitate the appropriate, timely evaluation and use of indicated therapies in both AMI and CHF patients. Change, while never easy, can be beneficial when properly motivated, designed and implemented. Physicians can and do make a difference not only in the quality of care given but also in the quality of life lived by their patients. I.Q.H. is encouraging all Mississippi physicians and healthcare facilities to examine their treatment processes for AMI and CHF.
