The Joint Commission: PSC performance measure renamed

Editor's Note

The Joint Commission, on July 5, announced that the Primary Stroke Center (PSC) Certification performance measure Stroke Volume (STK-VOL-1) is being renamed to Ischemic Stroke Patients who Receive Mechanical Endovascular Reperfusion Therapy, which removes the word “eligible” from the title.

The change distinguishes ischemic stroke patients who receive mechanical endovascular reperfusion therapy at a primary stroke center (STK-VOL-1) from therapy-eligible ischemic stroke patients who are transferred to a higher level stroke center for possible neuro-intervention and reported in Stroke Outpatient performance measure (STK-OP-1): Door to Transfer to Another Hospital.

The changes will be effective January 1, 2024.
