Cardiac ARIA Index: Measuring accessibility to cardiovascular services in rural and remote Australia via applied geographic spatial technology

Heart attack by postcode: how fast and close is due treatment? Australians considering where to have a heart attack can now do a postcode check on the speed and quality of medical treatment they are likely to receive.

The Cardiac Accessibility and Remoteness Index for Australia (Cardiac ARIA) rates neighbourhoods by the level of emergency and preventative care available in the potentially life-threatening event of a heart attack and afterwards when residents return home..

The Index brings home the vast disparities in rural & remote cardiac care vs what is available in urban areas.
