RQI Partners, LLC Academic Partnership

The American Heart Association and Laerdal Medical are two mission-driven organizations, united with a shared lifesaving goal and seeking no less than a paradigm shift in the standard of care in hospital resuscitation. They are strategic partners with a commitment to saving more lives and leading innovative change in healthcare.

Furthering this resolve was the announcement in July 2018 of the formation of a new joint venture partnership, RQI Partners, LLC. The company positions both organizations to deliver innovative solutions that accelerate their lifesaving mission, blending the Association’s leadership in science with Laerdal’s expertise in technology and implementation to deliver impactful resuscitation quality improvement programs.

RQI Partners believes there is an incredible opportunity to impact quality, competency, and responsiveness, and most importantly, save more lives. The company is committed to saving 50,000 additional lives from preventable cardiac arrest each year by 2025. This is based on the adoption of the RQI program across all U.S. hospitals, combined with strategies to prevent cardiac arrest and implementation of known practices to improve survival.

To say "thank you" to RQI Partners’ employees who reside in our community, Marist College is offering special tuition pricing for all RQI Partners’ employees and their immediate adult family members.
