ACS SSR Practice Improvement Initiative Opens Enrollment in 2023

The ACS Surgeon Specific Registry (ACS SSR™) in 2023 will offer the SSR Practice Improvement Initiative (SSR PII) - Quality Case Data Review and Reflection activity, allowing surgeons to perform quality data assessment with the goal of identifying trends, gaps, and improvement opportunities.

The PII was developed by surgeons, for surgeons. It provides opportunities for continual collection, review, and education based on their case data, including outcomes. Interactive sessions increase surgeon engagement and information exchange, and surgeon participants can obtain Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for their participation.

In addition, using the analytics functionality and benchmarking report, surgeons can compare their individual data against aggregated SSR and ACS National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP®) data. The report focuses on preoperative and postoperative data, and surgeons can learn from their data continually and determine successful outcomes or steps they can take in the future to ensure the best outcomes for their patients.

Interested in learning more or getting involved? Register for a SSR PII Basics Webinar today, with multiple options for time and date, and enroll now into the SSR PII 2023. Contact the SSR team at ssr@facs.org for more information.

The ACS designates this Other activity (Quality Data Review and Assessment of Trends) for a maximum of 28.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Of the AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ listed above, a maximum of 10 credits meet the requirements for Self-Assessment.
