Georgia Coverdell Acute Stroke Registry


Named in honor of the late Senator Paul Coverdell of Georgia, who died of a massive stroke in 2000, the primary goal of the Georgia Coverdell Acute Stroke Registry (GCASR) program is to improve the care of acute stroke patients in the hospital and pre-hospital settings. The program is funded by the Centers for Disease Control Paul S. Coverdell National Acute Stroke Registry cooperative agreement and was established in 2001 as a prototype project implemented by the Emory University School of Medicine. Full implementation and incorporation into the State’s Department of Public Health (DPH) began in 2005.
