SSR - Swiss Stroke Registry
The Swiss Stroke Register (SSR) has been managing standardized data from patients with acute stroke, cerebral hemorrhage and other cerebrovascular diseases since 2014. Numerous research projects have been derived from its data pool.
The Swiss Stroke Registy (SSR) was mandated by the Schweizerische Hirnschlaggesellschaft (SHG). All hospitals certified in stroke therapy in Switzerland are connected to the SSR and provide data from patients suffering from stroke. To date, around 70'000 patients have been registered in the SSR. More than 10'000 cases are added annually.
The registry is one of the most comprehensive platforms for multicenter research projects conducted throughout Switzerland. The aim is to continuously improve the quality of stroke therapy and the nationwide coordination of therapeutic care.
The registry is coordinated by Prof. Mira Katan, Head Physician Neurology and Head of the Stroke Unit at the University Hospital Basel (USB).
As of October 2021
