A Study to Quantify Use of Anticoagulation to Improve Management of Atrial Fibrillation

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of a hospital quality improvement (QI) program on the use of guideline-recommended oral anticoagulants (OAC) in hospitalized patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) at risk for ischemic stroke. Specifically, the study will determine whether the intervention, compared to Usual Care, will result in a greater increase in the proportion of patients with AF at risk for ischemic stroke who are appropriately treated with OAC.
