Still Time to Enroll the ACS SSR Practice Improvement Initiative; Learn More at Clinical Congress

September 27, 2022

The ACS Surgeon Specific Registry (ACS SSR™) is offering the opportunity for surgeons to participate in the second cycle of the SSR Practice Improvement Initiative (SSR PII) 2022 - Quality Case Data Review and Reflection activity, which allows surgeons to perform quality data assessments that identify trends, gaps, and improvement opportunities.

The PII was developed by surgeons, for surgeons. This provides various opportunities to best collect, review, and learn from their surgical case data continually, including outcomes. Interactive sessions increase surgeon engagement and exchange, and surgeons can obtain Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit.

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 data. The report focuses on preoperative and postoperative data, enabling surgeons to learn from their data continually and determine successful outcomes.

Learn more about SSR PII 2022, and enroll now. Register for the October 4 SSR PII Basics Webinar now.

The ACS designates this Other activity (Quality Data Review and Assessment of Trends) for a maximum of 15 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 0 credits meet the requirements for Self-Assessment.
