Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival

Description: 

CARES was developed to help communities determine standard outcome measures for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), allowing for local quality improvement efforts and benchmarking capability to improve care and increase survival.

CARES is a secure, Web-based data management system in which participating communities enter local data and generate their own reports. Communities can compare their EMS system performance to de-identified aggregate statistics at the local, state, or national level and discover promising practices that could improve emergency cardiac care.
