Strategies 2.1.4:
Collect long-term patient outcomes data to use in analysis for ongoing quality improvement efforts.

Strategy from the 2011-2020 Minnesota Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Plan

Minnesota Resuscitation Consortium

The MN Resuscitation Consortium is collecting state-wide data using CARES (Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival). Enrollment in CARES is optional and currently covers over 70% of the state by population. CARES data connects pre-hospital patient reports to hospitals outcomes. Agencies and hospitals enrolled in CARES can review and compare their data to statewide and national data to be used for quality improvement as well as internally.
