Get With The Guidelines®-Resuscitation Overview

Updated:Jun 28,2016
When a patient's life hangs by a thread,
the power to save it may hang by a guideline.
Get With The Guidelines®-Resuscitation has its roots in the American Heart Association's National Registry of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (NRCPR), started in 1999 to collect resuscitation data from hospitals nationwide and create evidence-based guidelines for inpatient CPR.
In 2010, the program was incorporated into Get With The Guidelines and enhanced to provide additional resources, tools and benefits, including:
  • identification of improvement opportunities
  • performance comparison with hospitals
  • reduction of noncompliance and medical errors through data-driven peer review
  • access to the most up-to-date research and scientific publications
  • professional education opportunities, such as workshops and webinars
  • clinical tools and resources
  • QI field staff support
  • a competitive advantage in the healthcare marketplace
  • national and local recognition for hospital team program achievement
  • web-based data collection to fulfill Joint Commission standards and other requirements
  • performance feedback reporting for continuous quality improvement
Data collection and feedback reporting are performed using the American Heart Association’s Patient Management Tool™ (PMT), an online, interactive system provided by Quintiles Real World & Late Phase Research. Download the Get With The Guidelines-Resuscitation fact sheets for more information.
The Get With The Guidelines-Resuscitation program is provided by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
