Official Notice Regarding Transition of NRCPR Data

Updated:Mar 3,2011
A new name for NRCPR.
New resources for your hospital.
  
NRCPR is now part of the American Heart Association’s acclaimed Get With The Guidelines® quality improvement suite. The change entails a new program name: Get With The Guidelines®-Resuscitation. More importantly, it entails access to new resources for participating hospitals, including
 
  • the Web-based Patient Management Tool®, powered by Outcome Sciences, Inc, providing expansive reporting features
  • an online toolkit, webinars and teleconferences
  • a nationwide network of AHA Quality Improvement professionals to support your program efforts
  • knowledge-sharing with healthcare thought leaders
  • national and local recognition opportunities for high-performing hospitals
 
The move to Get With The Guidelines-Resuscitation adds new capabilities without the loss of valuable NRCPR data assets. You will be able to preserve your existing data so you can continue to use it for trending, benchmarking and historical analyses after transitioning to the new platform.
 
 
Before, during and after the transition, the American Heart Association Quality Improvement team will provide information, training and full field support. We’ll be contacting you with details. In the meantime, please direct questions to Mindy Smyth at 954.294.2329 or your local AHA Quality Improvement staff.

NRCPR® Analysis Database

If you have not already created an Analysis Database from the DI Software as previously suggested, and wish to do so after October 1, 2010, you should contact DI.  You no longer have a license through the AHA for use of the DI software after September 30, 2010.

If you have not already created an Analysis Database from the DI Software as previously suggested, and wish to do so after October 1, 2010, you should contact DI.  You no longer have a license through the AHA for use of the DI software after September 30, 2010.

It will be necessary for all Get With The Guidelines®-Resuscitation Participants to create a method to identify patient records that were transferred by September 24, 2010 into the Get With The Guidelines®- Resuscitation data repository.  Private Health Information (PHI) will not be available within your transferred records; however the old NRCPR® number will be available once the data is incorporated into the new Get With The Guidelines®-Resuscitation Repository.

As AHA previously advised, you can use the Analysis Database (ADB) that you created prior to September 30, 2010 as a reference for identifying specific transferred records.  If you have not already created an ADB as previously suggested, and wish to do so after October 1, 2010, you should contact DI.  You no longer have a license through the AHA for use of the DI software after September 30, 2010.
