  • New Target: Stroke Honor Roll-Elite: Time to thrombolytic therapy within 60 minutes in 75 percent or more of acute ischemic stroke patients treated with IV tPA (current criteria and same volume thresholds).
  • New Target: Stroke Honor Roll-Elite Plus: Time to thrombolytic therapy within 60 minutes in 75 percent or more of acute ischemic stroke patients treated with IV tPA AND door-to-needle time within 45 minutes in 50 percent of acute ischemic stroke patients treated with IV tPA (current criteria and same volume thresholds).
