As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, we’re listening and learning, and committed to helping all within our healthcare community on the front lines helping save lives. I’m contacting you today to share a new Scientific Statement, an online learning module and a library of resources to address some of your urgent concerns.
Earlier today, to address the challenges of providing resuscitation in the setting of the COVID-19 global pandemic and to balance the immediate needs of the victims with the provider’s safety, the American Heart Association released a Scientific Statement: Interim Guidance for Basic and Advanced Life Support in Adults, Children, and Neonates with Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19.
A new online adaptive learning course, developed to support and coincide with the release of the Scientific Statement, will enable healthcare providers to understand how to apply interim guidance to treat cardiac arrest victims with suspected or confirmed COVID-19. This complementary eLearning course: “Interim Guidance for Resuscitation of Patients With Suspected or Confirmed COVID-19” can be viewed on desktop, laptop, mobile device or through a learning management system, and is available for download.
Saving Lives Safely
Along with our parent organizations – the American Heart Association, Laerdal Medical – and our partners at the Resuscitation Academy Foundation – we are committed to delivering COVID-19 resources to ensure providers keep their focus where it needs to be in this moment: helping people and protecting their own health and energy, while ensuring they remain competent for helping save lives through effective resuscitation skills. You can access these resources and new guidance on our COVID-19 Support page. Please use them freely with all of your colleagues.
We’re thankful for the valiant efforts you and your fellow healthcare professionals continue to provide and are privileged to have this opportunity to be of service.

Data, analysis and insights are crucial to improving healthcare outcomes. In resuscitation education, we are transitioning from traditional classroom-based education compliance models to highly evolved platforms that allow us to see and verify learner competence and organizational performance. Using data to measure and improve, we can verify learner competence, clinical performance and drive quality improvement to increase cardiac arrest survival. Read More >
In honor of American Heart Month, we’d like to express our gratitude to hospitals who trust American Heart Association programs to achieve the lifesaving mission we share.
“AHA is the standard everyone recognizes when it comes to evidence-based practice and research, and that’s something we wanted to be a part of.” – AHA Training Center Read More >
When you have a responsibility for resuscitation quality and patient care, it’s important to understand the full impact that a resuscitation program has on the safety and outcomes of your patients. American Heart Association programs are the Gold Standard for quality and efficacy you can rely on to protect your staff and your patients, and ensure your mission to provide the highest quality of care.
Widely recognized as the leader in resuscitation science and education, the AHA sets the standard for resuscitation quality and cardiac care in the United States. You may not realize this, but the AHA is also the only U.S. organization that is a part of ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) and the source for CPR and Emergency Cardiovascular Care Guidelines in North America.

As 2018 rapidly draws to a close, RQI Partners has taken the opportunity to look back at what an eventful and transformative year this has been.
This year, the American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical joined together to host the inaugural RQI 2020 Keynote and Healthcare Networking Conference in Dallas, Texas. Two mission-driven organizations united to revolutionize the standard of care in resuscitation practice and accelerate our mission to save 50,000 additional lives each year. Additionally, the organizations announced the formation of RQI Partners …
This year also saw RQI Partners develop new and impactful partnerships with other trailblazing companies – Relias and HealthStream – that are equally dedicated to this lifesaving mission .
With so much to be thankful for as we approach the Christmas holiday, we are also earnestly looking forward. RQI Partners is eager to continue its mission, extend its reach and save more lives in 2019.
Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year from all of us at RQI Partners to you, your friends and loved ones!
The American Heart Association and Laerdal have changed the paradigm for resuscitation practices – and it’s working successfully at leading health care organizations. Learn how these organizations have pioneered the Resuscitation Quality Improvement program as trailblazers for a new standard of care.
This new standard emphasizes mastery learning with low-dose, high frequency quality improvement sessions that measure and verify competence in high-quality CPR. By practicing CPR more often in shorter sessions, knowledge and skills stay sharp, decay is prevented and more lives are saved. Hospital staff are verified as competent to deliver high-quality CPR on any given day, to every patient. The paradigm has shifted from course completion to every day competence for your providers. RQI offers a scalable, high reliability system for the new standard that builds efficiencies, lowers costs and improves patient outcomes and lowers costs.
