CARES Reporting Form

Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (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. The program seeks to save more lives from OHCA; strengthen collaboration between 911 centers, first responders, emergency medical services (EMS) agencies, and hospitals; provide a simple, confidential process for assessing patient outcomes in compliance with HIPAA; offer technical assistance to help community leaders identify and prioritize opportunities to improve EMS performance, and generate annual national and statewide reports for benchmarking capability.
