NSQIP: National Surgical Quality Improvement Program

For selected surgical procedures, the voluntary National Surgical Quality Improvement Program collects very detailed information based on clinical review of patient medical records according to common definitions.

“The ACS National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) is the first nationally validated, risk-adjusted, outcomes-based program to measure and improve the quality of surgical care. The program employs a prospective, peer controlled, validated database to quantify 30-day risk-adjusted surgical outcomes, which allows valid comparison of outcomes among all hospitals in the program.”
