Stroke | ICHOM – International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement


The ICHOM Standard Set for Stroke was published in American Heart & Stroke Association.


The ICHOM Standard Set for Stroke is the result of hard work by a group of leading physicians, measurement experts and patients. It represents the outcomes that matter most to patients who have had a stroke. We urge all providers around the world to start measuring these outcomes to better understand how to improve the lives of their patients. We are currently reviewing and updating the Stroke Reference Guide and Database. If you are interested in measuring the Stroke Standard Set, please contact
