SSR Practice Improvement Initiative 2023 – Quality Case Data Review and Reflection

Enroll Now in the SSR Register for BASICS

The American College of Surgeons Surgeon Specific Registry Practice Improvement Initiative (SSR PII) - Quality Case Data Review and Reflection (QCDRR) assists all surgeons with their continuous case data collection and data review, including outcomes data, by identifying trends, gaps, and performance improvement opportunities. To get started, “Enroll” and “Register now” for the PII BASICS educational webinar. You will learn how to best collect, review, and compare your individual case data to aggregated data real-time (Benchmarking Report) with the purpose of enhancing the quality of surgical care. Interactive sessions (Peer Engagement Online meetings) allow you to deepen your learning in a small peer surgeon group setting. As these sessions will become available throughout the year they will be announced via email and on this website. Additionally, the SSR PII offers you an opportunity to obtain Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit at the conclusion of the 11-month cycle in December 2023 (from January 15, 2023 through December 15, 2023). This activity (SSR PII) was developed by surgeons for surgeons.
