Future HeartRescue State Partner

Our Mission

The Texas-Cardiac Registry to Enhance Survival (Texas-CARES) Program promotes a comprehensive, standardized system of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) care in an effort to optimize patient outcomes by engaging partners in all links in the chain of survival – 9-1-1 centers, EMS agencies and municipal fire departments, hospitals, university researchers, and the public at-large.



Key Strengths

  • Experience implementing and studying the impact of quality-improvement programs in each link of the chain of survival.
  • Creating synergy with community organizations and public health and emergency response agencies engaged in independent efforts to improve bystander response and pre-hospital care.
  • An active state advisory board dedicated to expanding the CARES registry and improving OHCA care across Texas.
