In 2017 the Florida Legislature enacted a Florida Stroke Registry (FSR) to be maintained and managed by the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. The FSR supports:

  • Improvement of the Quality of Stroke Care Throughout Florida

  • Decreasing Identified Disparities and Gaps in Stroke Care

  • Enhancing and Supporting Synergy Across All Stroke Systems of Care

The Florida Department of Heath provides crucial funding for the Florida Stroke Registry so that we can continue to improve stroke care in the state of Florida.

We work in close collaboration with The American Heart Association on many levels, with the common goal of improving stoke care through research and providing educational material to FSR stakeholders and our community.
