Welcome to ACS NSQIP
Today’s healthcare environment demands more than ever of surgeons and the hospitals they work in. Payors, including Medicare, increasingly refuse to pay for treating complications deemed preventable, such as surgical site infections. A growing movement aims to tie reimbursements to outcomes – and publicly report the results. At the same time, hospitals face staffing shortages and financial pressures, trying to do more with less.
Discover what hundreds of hospitals across America already know. A surgical quality improvement program so effective that EACH YEAR a hospital uses it, on average, it has the opportunity to:
- Prevent 250-500 complications
- Save 12-36 lives
- Reduce costs by millions of dollars
Discover the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®). ACS NSQIP is the leading nationally validated, risk-adjusted, outcomes-based program to measure and improve the quality of surgical care in the private sector. ACS NSQIP has the tools, training, customization options and, most importantly, data, to keep your hospital ahead of the curve.
