CART Resources

QualityNet (QNet)

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Abstraction & Reporting Tool (CART) is used for inpatient and outpatient data collection and analyses to inform quality improvement efforts. CART is available from QualityNet for use on a stand-alone, Windows-based computer, in a computer network or in environments without computing resources (paper tool). The application is available at no charge to hospitals or other organizations seeking to improve quality of care.

Information about CART, including download information, abstraction resources and training can be found on the QualityNet website.
