The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Surgeon Specific Registry (SSR) is a Web and mobile software application and database that allows surgeons to track their cases and outcomes in a convenient, easy-to-use manner. The SSR builds on the ACS Case Log system, enabling surgeons not only to log and keep track of their cases, but also participate in an increasing number of regulatory programs for the individual health care professional.
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. The 2015 PQRS General Surgery Measures Group is now available in the SSR. 2015 PQRS individual measures and 2015 ACS SSR Qualified Clinical Data Registry – Trauma measures will be available in the SSR later this year. 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.
