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

Surgeon Specific Registry

The ACS Surgeon Specific Registry (ACS SSR™) is an online quality improvement tool and software application database that allows surgeons to track their cases and outcomes in a convenient, easy-to-use manner from their computer or mobile devices (iOS and Android). The SSR is hosted by IQVIA.

Log in to the SSR

It is becoming increasingly recognized that a database specific for surgeons is needed for a variety of different initiatives, and the SSR has been refined to continue addressing many of the regulatory requirements for individual surgeons. The system supports the American Board of Surgery’s (ABS) Continuous Certification requirements including the transmittal of cases to the Board. The SSR also continues to work closely with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to implement the Quality Payment Program (QPP) Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for the 2019 performance year.

As a benefit of membership in the ACS, there is no registration charge for the SSR. Non-ACS surgeon members can sign up for the SSR program for an annual subscription fee.
