CARES in Missouri

Each of the six EMS regions in Missouri has at least one EMS agency submitting data to the CARES registry, resulting in nearly half of the state population (nearly 3 million people) being covered by CARES agencies.

How you can get involved

If you are a member of an agency listed above, you can use the CARES database to gain insights on cardiac arrest events that can help lead to better emergency cardiac treatment.

CARES participants can generate multiple real-time reports via secure online access, allowing for longitudinal, internal benchmarking. Both locally and nationally, there is increasing emphasis on the role of data collection as the foundation for improving care.

In its 2015 report "Strategies to Improve Cardiac Arrest Survival: A Time to Act," the Institute of Medicine recommended the establishment of a national cardiac arrest registry "to monitor performance in terms of both success and failure, identify problems and track progress."

By participating in CARES, you are taking the first step to saving lives in your community. To get started, fill out the CARES account setup form by clicking the link below. If you are with a hospital and would like to establish a memorandum of understanding, please email
