Join us as we recognize American Heart Month 2022

February is American Heart Month

RQI Partners is proud to be part of the American Heart Association, the global authority on heart health education, research, and CPR training. The mission of RQI Partners is to help save more lives from sudden cardiac arrest, a life-threatening event often caused by heart disease.

During this year’s American Heart Month, we hope to share continued awareness about the impact of cardiac events and the positive outcomes of lives saved thanks to resuscitation education from the American Heart Association digital resuscitation portfolio. As the preferred solution to uniquely and efficiently deliver safe and effective CPR quality improvement, our digital programs – deeply rooted in the latest resuscitation science – lead healthcare organizations on an immediate journey to high-quality and verified CPR competence to maximize lifesaving outcomes.

These save stories we want to share with you are from our organizations who have found our resuscitation education helpful in saving more lives from sudden cardiac arrest. If you have a save story you would like to share, please email us at

The Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) Program

The Resuscitation Quality Improvement program is a simulation-based, mastery learning program that uses low-dose, high-frequency quarterly learning and skill sessions to achieve and verify competence in lifesaving, high-quality CPR, and to enhance skills confidence and retention. In clinical studies, RQI has been proven to improve the delivery of clinical CPR quality in sudden cardiac arrest events.
