National Registry of CardioPulmonary Resuscitation (NRCPR) is what our facility uses to track codes. It will track and trend, send quarterly reports, and is sufficient for Joint Commission requirements. It originates from the American Heart Association. It keeps track of those "gold standard" things like time to first epi for VF/pulseless VT, time to intubation, etc. It will also keep track of Medical Emergency Team activations (or Rapid Response Teams as some facilities call it). It is a yearly fee, $1500 comes to mind, but not quite sure. I have info on a contact person if you are interested, or you can go to their website.
