Description: The HHS Office of Minority Health will offer a funding opportunity for the design, development and testing of a standardized data collection infrastructure for out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) data, including the capability to receive data from multiple sources (e.g. 911 dispatch centers, emergency medical service providers, and receiving hospitals) and a reporting mechanism that includes annual reports. A strategic plan will also be developed to tie intervention implementation activities to the data collection, based on identified best practices for pairing OHCA data collection to implementation activities. BACKGROUND INFORMATION: There are over 350,000 cases of OHCA annually and these account for 50 percent of all cardiovascular related mortality in the United States. Data also show survival rate disparities by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status. The collection of nationally representative data in the pre-hospital space has been lacking and was identified by the Institute of Medicine as a key rate-limiting factor in improving survival from OHCA. The ability to characterize a population with appropriate data elements relevant to OHCA allows for baseline determination and the ability to track progress over time to determine effectiveness of implementation efforts. Known interventions (e.g., telephone CPR and bystander CPR) to improve cardiac arrest survival are readily available, but the ability to use the resources judiciously is hampered by the lack of quality data in the pre-hospital space and frequently leads to inaction if local governments cannot see the scope of the problem for their communities. It has been shown that in communities that begin tracking their OHCA cases via registry participation, survival outcomes can be increased by over 75 percent in as little as three years. There are also improvements in the rates of long-term complications that decrease quality of life that significantly impact the public health and economic burden of OHCA.
