RQI® – Resuscitation Quality Improvement®
The Resuscitation Quality Improvement® (RQI)® programs provide a high-reliability platform for simulation-based mastery learning, implemented through low-dose, high-frequency quality improvement sessions that measure and verify competence to help healthcare providers retain and master life-saving skills. The quarterly RQI curriculum delivers cognitive eLearning and self-directed skills training in manageable sessions at the point of care.
Conducting effective resuscitation training can be a challenge. Time, resources, cost, and quality are all important factors. The HeartCode programs deliver high-quality resuscitation training through a more flexible delivery method. By combining self-paced eLearning with hands-on skills training, learners and administrators gain more control of their time, schedule, and resources.
Low-dose, high-frequency training is the foundation of the Resuscitation Quality Improvement (RQI) programs that measure and verify competence, to help healthcare providers retain life-saving skills.
The results speak for themselves:
- On average, more than 97% of all RQI users remain compliant.
- In a study done by Mercy Health, they found that 82% of users felt they were more confident in their CPR skills after using RQI.
- Healthcare institutions using RQI see a +20% increase in survival rates from cardiac arrest.
- Organizations implementing RQI have seen a savings in areas of instructors, missed shifts or substitutions, material costs, travel, turnover-related training costs, and CPR manikin and technology maintenance costs. Illinois Valley Community Hospital in the United States benefitted from a +47% annual cost reduction.
