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

ISCR Recruitment Webinars

The Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality, in collaboration with the American College of Surgeons, is now enrolling hospitals for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Safety Program for Improving Surgical Care and Recovery, a collaborative program to enhance the recovery of surgical patients. The project is funded and guided by the AHRQ.

Hospitals are encouraged to begin enrollment NOW in order to participate in the 18-month program that starts March 1, 2020. We are enrolling hospitals who are interested in implementing an emergency general surgery or colorectal enhanced recovery surgery program.

As part of this program, hospitals will have access to evidence-based enhanced recovery pathways, coaching and content calls with experts in the field, resources to help implement your program, the ACS data collection platform and continuous clinical and implementation support.
