To advise the Sacramento County Emergency Medical Services Agency (SCEMSA) Medical Director on the establishment of stroke related​ policies, procedures, treatment protocols, education, training, quality improvement and data collection issues and the standard of quality for stroke care in Sacramento County. 
The Stroke Review Committee looks at structure, process, and outcome evaluations and focuses on improvement efforts to identify causes of problems, intervene to reduce or eliminate these causes, and take steps to correct the process and recognize excellence in performance and delivery of care.  This critical care system links prehospital and hospital care to deliver treatment to stroke patients who potentially require immediate medical or surgical intervention.
