American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Inspiring Quality Tour

Inspiring Quality Tour

Since May 2011 the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has been hosting the Inspiring Quality tour, a series of community forums to stimulate discussion about how quality improvement programs in our nation’s hospitals can reduce patient readmissions, prevent medical errors, improve patient outcomes, and reduce costs. These community forums bring together health care leaders and policy experts to discuss best practices and the key elements of surgical quality programs. 

For information on the community forums, contact Lynn Kahn, Director, Division of Integrated Communications.
