Working together in an environment focused on sharing information rather than competition, ACS NSQIP Collaboratives create an opportunity for hospitals to come together to:
ACS NSQIP Collaboratives are available to all hospitals in ACS NSQIP. Collaboratives can be regional, system-wide, or virtual and range from highly structured groups with formal data sharing agreements, payor support, group oversight, and specialized reporting to an informal group of hospitals coming together simply to discuss their quality improvement experiences.
More than 65 ACS NSQIP collaborative groups currently exist or are in development. Each collaborative receives technical support and guidance from ACS NSQIP in developing data-sharing strategies, designing specialized reports and publicizing the group’s efforts. Collaboratives may be regional, health systemwide, or virtual.
ACS NSQIP Collaboratives are available to all participating hospitals. For more information on joining a current collaborative or forming a new collaborative, please contact Emma Malloy at email@example.com.
