Tobacco/Nicotine Product Type• We would need to consider capturing this variable in order to support the following domain related to Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Program/American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Get With The Guidelines (GTWG). The goal is to reduce gaps in stroke care across the continuum of care in states with high burden populations. • The information captured from stroke patients and those who encounter mobility related issues and are at risk of multiple hospitalizations due to post-discharge complications can help in reducing the gaps in care and to plan quality improvement efforts. # Domain # of Variables Variable Details Required or Optional 1 Tobacco 1 1. Is the patient using tobacco products (cigarettes, cigars/cigarillos, little cigars, pipes, smokeless tobacco (chew, dip, snuff, snus), hookah/water pipe, and electronic vapor products (e-cigarettes, e-hookah, vape pens) every day or some days?). Optional Use-Case Justification: The most challenging part is capturing the information post-hospital discharge for acute stroke patients. A lot of the pre-hospital care is captured through National Emergency Medical Services Information System (NEMSIS), a national database that stores EMS data from the U.S. States and Territories). The follow-up elements proposed above have been developed as a part of the Paul Coverdell National Acute Stroke Program (link provided below) and captured within EHR for submission into American Heart Association’s (AHA) Get With The Guidelines (GTWG) module. The ability to extract the follow-up encounter related dates would help with the identification of gaps in post-hospital discharge date for stroke patients and plan strategies for Quality Improvement efforts. https://www.cdc.gov/dhdsp/programs/stroke_registry.htm This field is for general comments on this specific data element.
