CARES can make a difference. CARES helps communities measure performance and identify how to improve cardiac arrest survival rates. By joining CARES, communities gain more than just access
to information that will help them improve performance and save lives. They also contribute to one of the largest EMS registries in the world, and one of the few that also includes
patient outcome information from hospitals. Those features enable CARES data to be used to conduct vital research that furthers our knowledge of cardiac arrest
treatment and saves countless lives for years to come.
Benefits of joining CARES:
Join a network of communities working together to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest
Compare your community to local, state, and national performance and discover ways to improve your emergency medical system's response to cardiac arrest
Use simple, HIPAA-compliant, web-based software to link EMS and hospital data, creating a single record for each OHCA event
Access multiple real-time reporting features, including charts, graphs, and tables for use in reports, presentations, and more
Receive training and ongoing support from CARES staff to get the most out of participation, including one-on-one consultation to review your community's annual report and comparison to national benchmarks
We are excited to share a recent publication by Dr. Ben Bobrow et al. that examines the association between Telephone CPR (T-CPR), bystander CPR rates, and OHCA outcomes.
Importance: Bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) significantly improves survival from out-of-hospital car
We are excited to present you with a summary video on 2015 metrics. This video includes participation statistics of the program along with National Report summary data. We hope you enjoy this informative presentation. Thank you for your continued CARES support and participation!
