CARES Implementation in Maryland

An updated and consolidated Cardiac Arrest tab on the run form will allow EMS clinicians to readily enter comprehensive prehospital cardiac arrest information. The prehospital information can then be directly exported by MIEMSS to the CARES registry the first time it is entered, saving time for the clinician. 


Using a single eMEDS® patient care record for CARES submission makes Maryland one of the first states to incorporate this process within their ePCR documentation.  Maryland hospitals that receive patients and have on-going care in the emergency department will then enter outcome data into the CARES record.
