RES-Q is one of the largest international stroke quality registry. Registry of Stroke Care Quality (RES-Q) was launched in 2016. It is currently used in 89 countries across continents, having > 1950 hospitals (both public and private),with > 540,000 patients data.
RES-Q is a ready platform for hospitals to capture quality of stroke care throughout the whole patients pathway until discharged and follow up after 3 months.
The registry provides real time feedback on stroke care quality in a form of dashboards and reports, and provides benchmarking against national average and in some countries against all other hospitals. Also, users can easily download their source data. National coordinators have access to national data and can provide them for national activities such as quality improvement or research. Any user can apply to Health Management Institute Scientific Committee to obtain global RES-Q data for research purposes.
RES-Q Registry uses data collection form harmonized across all users and countries which contributes to standardization of stroke management around the world. Form is simple and uses dynamic fields. It is available in 10 languages including English.
RES-Q was initiated as an initiative of ESO EAST (European Stroke Organization- Enhancing and Accelerating Stroke Treatment), to help hospitals and countries improve their stroke care systems. RES-Q works in close collaboration with World Stroke Organization (WSO), European Stroke Organization (ESO), American Heart Association/ Stroke Association (AHA/ ASA), Angels Initiative, Mechanical Thrombectomy 2020+ (MT2020+), and many other national stroke societies worldwide.
RES-Q Registry is GDPR compliant. The data captured in RES-Q is used by several countries to publish their country level data in National and international journals. This data is also used by countries to bring policy change at a country level and process change in the hospitals.
RES-Q is one of the key partners to WSO, mainly collaborating for the WSO Stroke Certification program. It is also one of the preferred registry for the certification program. Hospitals registered in RES-Q automatically get to participate in the WSO Angels Award program. WSO is also collaborating to create global evidence on Quality of Stroke care using RES-Q data, by using March month’s discharge data.

WSO is proud to announce its involvement as one of the 21 partners in the RES-Q+ project consortium, led by Prof Robert Mikulik. This project has recently received a Horizon Europe grant and aims to enhance acute stroke care and improve the lives of stroke patients.
Over the next four years, WSO, along with the Angels Initiative and SAFE, will be responsible for coordinating communication and dissemination efforts related to the project.
Health Management Institute, a non-profit organization, operates the RES-Q registry, a global database focused on improving stroke care. The registry, initially an initiative of the European Stroke Organisation (ESO), is now supported by various organizations including WSO, AHA/ASA, and other stakeholders. Currently, over 2,100 hospitals from 92 countries are registered in RES-Q, with data on more than 580,000 stroke patients.
The RES-Q+ project, funded by the EU, aims to enhance healthcare by leveraging the existing RES-Q platform. It plans to achieve this by creating an automated tool for data collection and processing, providing feedback to healthcare providers through AI-based virtual assistants, and developing virtual assistants to monitor the condition of stroke patients.
The RES-Q+ project is anticipated to revolutionize healthcare by automating various processes and paving the way for future advancements.Read more about the future of the quality registry
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
