Verifying quality across all surgical specialties
ACS Quality Verification Program™ (ACS QVP) provides a proven, standardized method for establishing, measuring, and improving your hospital-wide quality infrastructure. You’ll receive an in-depth assessment at hospital and specialty levels. It will include customized, actionable recommendations—such as leadership and safety culture. Using the framework of the 12 ACS QVP Standards, you will be able to find, fix, and prevent problems. Bottom line, ACS QVP makes an impact across all surgical departments.
At the 2022 Quality and Safety Conference, ACS QVP announced the first hospitals that have met the standards defined in the Optimal Resources for Surgical Quality and Safety 2021 ACS QVP Standards.
