The Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival

In 2004, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collaborated with Emory University to develop a registry that could help increase OHCA survival rates.

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