STS: Society of Thoracic Surgeons

The database of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons is a voluntary system which allows a hospital to contribute detailed clinical data collected from patient medical records according to common definitions in order to identify opportunities for improvement.

“The Society of Thoracic Surgeons offers outcome programs in the areas of Adult Cardiac, General Thoracic and Congenital surgery. By committing to collecting outcomes data to the STS National Database, surgeons are committing to improving the quality of care that their cardiothoracic surgery patients receive.”
