The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgeon Specific Registry (SSR) allows surgeons to track their cases and outcomes in a convenient, easy-to-use manner. This system allows surgeons to compare their outcomes to others in a confidential way.
It is becoming increasingly recognized that a database specific for surgeons is needed for a variety of different initiatives, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Physician Quality Reporting System (CMS PQRS), various boards of surgery, and other regulatory items.
The system supports Part 4 of Maintenance of Certification (MOC) and provides for electronic transmittal of cases to the American Board of Surgery for recertification. The SSR also continues to work closely with CMS to remain a PQRS-qualified registry. SSR PQRS is not yet available for 2015. CMS is currently in the process of approving qualified registries for 2015. More information will be available after CMS has approved the SSR for 2015. If you have questions regarding PQRS participation in the SSR, please e-mail SSR@facs.org.
The SSR has been refined to continue addressing many of the regulatory requirements for individual surgeons.
