AMI Mortality

AMI stands for Acute Myocardial Infarction, or heart attack. AMI mortality is defined as a patient death from any cause within 30 days from the date of their initial admission for a heart attack. Actions taken while a patient is in the hospital and during transitions in care can affect a patient\'s risk for adverse outcomes. The 30-day timeframe places an emphasis on how the patient is treated after the heart attack, as well as transitions in care and whether the patient is suitable for discharge.
